Technology that enhances law enforcement officers’ ability to share information quickly and efficiently will soon be available to more agencies, an mobility expert with Salient CRGT said at a conference in South Carolina this week.
Martin Gillespie, vice president of product development for the company, spoke at the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association meeting in Myrtle Beach on July 10. Rapidly developing mobile technologies continue to positively impact law officers’ safety, Gillespie said.
“With increased demands on crime-fighting budgets, the need for real-time decision-making, and enhanced security in mobile environments, the value of secure, accurate and rapid response technology continues to prove itself as a cost-effective tool to improve officer safety,” Gillespie said. “We applaud the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association and their members as they look for cost-effective tools that will improve the safety of law enforcement officials on the front lines.”
Conference attendees had an opportunity to witness hands-on demonstrations of Salient CRGT’s suite of Voyager Mobility products. The products perform a range of functions, which include the ability to run warrants on-scene and provide on-the-go access to criminal justice databases.
Government agencies in 11 states already use Voyager Mobility products. The products will soon be available in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Gillespie also spoke at the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association spring meeting earlier this year. He has been a leader in mobile application development since 1990. works
