<p><a href=&quot;http://www.policemag.com/freeinfo/21339&quot;>MIR (Mobile Incident Reporting) Systems</a>&nbsp;is dedicated to making it easier for officers in the field to interact with dispatch, manage reports, and communicate with supervisors.

Using MIR tablets, officers can take high-def video and images, and the software will automatically attach the video or image to the incident report and classify itself in the report as evidence. Voice recognition allows an officer to dictate reports in minutes. Officers can also use the tablets to stream live video back to their supervisors.</p>
