Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
InterAct™, a leading provider of public safety solutions, announced today that version 4.4 of its industry-leading InterAct PocketCop® application is available and includes support for the Apple iPhone and iPad platforms. InterAct PocketCop delivers mission critical data to handheld devices increasing tactical awareness and total mobility for public safety. Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies across the United States use InterAct PocketCop today to enhance productivity in the field by giving officers, agents and investigators secure, mobile access to critical information, including FBI databases, state motor vehicle files and photos, and agency records.
Mobile technology has become more significant in all aspects of daily life both at home and work. InterAct recognizes the need for cross-platform mobile applications and has created an application for Apple iPhone and iPad. Officers can make unified tactical decisions by accessing critical NCIC information in the field and exchanging messages with fellow officers. InterAct has been proactive in developing platforms that promote integration and now InterAct PocketCop includes the ability to easily track updates from InterAct CAD or other computer-aided dispatch systems, such as additional units assigned to an incident in progress, increasing officer safety.
“With the increasing adoption rate of smartphones, many public safety agencies are looking closely at this platform, even as a lower cost alternative to in-car laptops,” according to Mike McGarry, InterAct Senior Vice President and General Manager, InterAct Products. “As the technology leader in the market, InterAct recognizes the demand for increased information anytime and anywhere, and we are delivering it with InterAct PocketCop. However, any device used to access Criminal Justice Information System protected data must be approved by the state’s CJIS security officer and we strongly advise customers to consult with the state early in the evaluation process.” Interested agencies can contact InterAct for further information on qualified devices.
In addition to the support of Apple iPhone and iPad platforms, InterAct PocketCop is available on BlackBerry, qualified Android smartphones, and Windows Mobile handhelds. This expanded cross-platform support gives InterAct customers more choices and flexibility in device selection, now and in the future.
