Local and state Massachusetts law enforcement agencies are using BIO-key's PocketCop wireless mobile information technology to provide security for the Democratic National Convention in Boston.
BIO-key's PocketCop software operating in handheld mobile wireless PDAs or laptop computers, will provide first responders and security officials in the field with the same vital tactical information that previously they only had access to in police stations or command centers.
"This is a major breakthrough in providing operational security technology for the law enforcement officer on the beat -- whether they are in a cruiser, on a boat in the harbor, on horseback, on a bike or on foot," said Mike DePasquale, BIO-key CEO. He added, "Access to integrated real-time information and communications with other parts of the command -- vital for patrol officer effectiveness -- have now become possible with BIO-key's security solutions."
With PocketCop, patrolling security officers will have real-time access to driver license information, including driver photographs, vehicle registration, stolen vehicle information, weapon registrations, wants and warrant information and access to local, state, county and federal criminal databases.
