Not Missing a Beat: How the Bristol Township Police Department is using rugged tablets to keep officers on the street

Bristol Township is a small, tight-knit community focused on creating a safe, clean, positive environment for its residents.To support that effort, the Bristol Township Police Department equips officers with rugged tablets to ensure their time is spent protecting the public — not in an office writing incident reports. 

Now Officers use the large-screen, lightweight Xplore rugged tablets to write incident reports, log information and access the county’s dispatch system using a digital pen, attached keyboard or touch-screen. Because each of the department’s tablets includes built-in connectivity capabilities, officers have access to records management systems, software, and local and federal databases such as CJIS.
