VIDEO: Essex: Mobile computer database to help police on the beat
3:00pm Saturday 30th November 2013 in Local News
Mobile database computers are being rolled out across the county to help officers access information on the go.
Essex Police is using mobile data terminals to allow officers to get information that is available to them at a police station.
This includes command and control systems, the Police National Computer and Automatic Number Plate Recognition.
The system also allows access to live CCTV coverage across the county.
Chief Inspector Paul Moor said the terminals gave officers all the information they needed at their immediate disposal and means officers can spend more time out of the office patrolling.
