Mountain View Police Department First to Trial Polaris Wireless Altus Blue Force Tracking Application
Oct 8 13
Polaris Wireless announced that it partnered with the Mountain View, California, Police Department (MVPD) to pilot the company's Altus blue force tracking application to augment police safety measures at a recent area concert. Altus was used to locate and track over twenty uniformed and plain-clothes police officers during the two-day concert, during which the MVPD conducted approximately 100 arrests. During this pilot deployment, some officers were equipped with department-provided mobile phones, which were monitored using Polaris Wireless Altus from a command post set up in the event grounds. Altus blue force tracking provides police departments and other law enforcement organizations with the ability to track police and other field officers (such as firefighters and emergency medical services [EMS] technicians), specifically when they are out of reach of their patrol vehicles, which typically contain separate location and tracking capabilities. Locaid provided the officers' location information, which was then displayed on the Altus tracking application. As a result, MVPD commanders were able to track officers' movements during the concert. Altus provides a more efficient and less obvious way of tracking an officer's location than traditional 2-way radio and verbal alerts.
