FRISCO, TEXAS PD CASE STUDY - GETAC VIDEO FOCUS
Frisco, Texas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Keeping up with this growth has been a challenge for the Frisco Police Department (FPD). Established in 1965, the FPD currently has about 220 officers keeping watch over the city’s approximately 70 square mile jurisdiction. Recently, the FPD spent about $1 million to update its portable computer and video recording infrastructure using equipment purchased from Getac and Getac Video Solutions (GVS).
“Before Getac, we did not have any body cameras available,” said Barry Turner, the FPD’s Public Safety Technology Manager. “Our servers were full. We were experiencing major failures in our system due to age, and the technology wasn't being supported.” The FPD’s decision to buy Getac ruggedized laptop/tablets computers, body-worn cameras (bodycams), in-car cameras and video displays came after some careful shopping by departmental personnel.
“We compared different brands,” said FPD Corporal Christopher Hands. “The main thing that we were looking for was user-friendliness, and something that can integrate with what we have already been using.” Click here for the full Case Study for Frisco TX Police Department. https://getacvideo.com/getac-solves-major-technology-accountability-issues-for-frisco-pd/ www.GetacVideo.com
