CDW-G Supports Multi-County Law Enforcement
Vernon Hills, Ill.—CDW Government LLC, a leading provider of technology solutions to government, education and healthcare customers, announced that it is supporting a law enforcement information sharing initiative involving 40 law enforcement agencies across 26 counties in the Texas Panhandle region, a rural area of 400,000 residents spanning nearly 26,000 square miles.
The initiative, called the Panhandle Regional Information and Data Exchange (PRIDE), supported by a nearly $1 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant and a $300,000 Department of Homeland Security grant, has three phases: equipping officer vehicles with ruggedized Panasonic Toughbook notebooks to enable information access; building a shared database of Class C warrant information, typically traffic violations and other infractions; and building a networked infrastructure and regional data hub that will provide access to state and national law enforcement databases.
Prior to the Toughbook implementation in 250 officer vehicles, officers either had data terminals with limited functionality, or they had no in-car access to law enforcement information at all. As a result, officers in the field relied on dispatch to search criminal databases and relay other critical information. CDW-G, a trusted advisor to law enforcement agencies across the country, was called on to execute the first phase of the project, and now the GPS-enabled Toughbooks help officers see who else is on patrol and their locations, as well as pending requests for assistance without needing to request assistance from dispatch.
