In an era where technology defines the landscape of many professions, law enforcement is no exception.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), under the leadership of Deputy Chief John McMahon, has embarked on a journey to redefine policing through advanced technologies. A key component of this transformation is the department’s shift toward a mobility-first strategy, with the eventual goal of adopting a mobility-only approach.

This strategic pivot is not just about equipping officers with department-issued smartphones for official duties; it’s about leveraging these devices as powerful tools that integrate game-changers like artificial intelligence. As a result, this enables officers to address complex policing challenges more efficiently and improve interactions within the community.

In light of this move by the LAPD, we are interested in understanding how widespread the practice of issuing department smartphones to officers is across other law enforcement agencies. Let us know by taking the poll below.
