Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
City of Lawrence (Indiana) Police Department has entered into an agreement with RTT Mobile Interpretation (“RTT”) to purchase RTT’s mobile interpretation system. The City of Lawrence will be the first Law Enforcement agency in Indiana to deploy this leading edge technology. Officers equipped with ELSA™ can now communicate immediately with anyone they encounter regardless of the language spoken.
“Implementing this technology will speed response time in critical situations and provide a greater sense of security for our officers and our community”, said City of Lawrence Police Chief Michael Walton.
ELSA™ is a light weight, body worn device attached to a user by a clip. Conversations are routed through RTT’s Network Operating Center and at the customer’s request can be saved in RTT’s data vault. By signing in to a secure portal users access and review recorded conversations – an option vital for organizations requiring verification of information exchange.
ELSA can be seen at the International Chiefs of Police Expo Sept. 29-Oct 2nd in San Diego, CA.
With around-the-clock access to highly trained, interpreters via RTT’s wireless service delivery platform, police, fire and EMS personnel can communicate in all languages at the push of a button. Additionally, ELSA’s affordability makes it possible for all municipalities, regardless of budget constraints, to implement this state of the art mobile interpretation solution.
“Business and public service organizations of all sizes are recognizing the value of immediate access to all languages,” said David Ladner, RTT’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our Agreement with the Lawrence Police Department shows the City’s commitment to reducing issues caused by language barriers in the City of Lawrence.”
