Iraqi Police Force Gets Ford PIs with WatchGuard Video Systems

June 07, 2013  | 

The Iraqi Police Force has received 300 new Ford Police Interceptors equipped with WatchGuard Video's in-car dash-cam systems, according to the company.

WatchGuard trainers spent three days training Iraqi officers on the use of the WatchGuard DV-1 direct-to-DVD system.

The DV-1 has been a longtime standard for agencies preferring a non-server-based video system, and is currently in use by the Texas Department of Public Safety, California Highway Patrol and thousands of other state and local agencies, according to the company.

"We feel incredibly honored to have been chosen to play a support role in building up the Iraqi Police infrastructure," said Robert Vanman, WatchGuard's CEO. "Our team at WatchGuard works hard to ensure every deployment is a success, and training is central to that. Our deployment in Iraq was no different."

WatchGuard also offers a server-free option for its newer 4RE High Definition in-car video system with the recent release of Evidence Library Express.

OK, Call me slow but why in the hell are we giving 300 new units to Iraq? Who paid for these? Who OK'd this fiasco?. Wait, WE paid for them and we all know who gave the go ahead. What about the Police Departments in this country, the ones being chopped to pieces by politicians? How many of you LEOs work with less then is needed? Running squads with more miles on them then a lot of taxis, patching units together with parts cannibalized from wrecks. I guess saving American lives is in second place. Blues, Stay Safe.
