The state's Department of Administrative Services awarded WPCS International Inc. a contract to install 400 of Panasonic's Toughbook Arbitrator 360 in-car digital video systems in state police vehicles over the next three years.
"We are committed to improving the technology used by our officers, which includes the implementation of the WPCS-supplied Panasonic solution," said Jason Rosa, director of the Bureau of Research Information for the Connecticut Department of Public Safety. "We chose WPCS through the state's competitive bid process, and they were selected because of their outstanding reputation for delivering quality products, services and support with advanced solutions."
The contract covers installation of Panasonic's Toughbook Arbitrator 360 in-car digital video system, which can record, transfer and store 360-degree high-quality digital video. The officers will monitor the Arbitrator 360 degree videos on a Panasonic Toughbook laptop mounted in their vehicles. The resulting evidence can be transferred automatically to police station servers using wireless hotspots.
