The benefits of new technology have transformed patrol cars across the country: a vehicle mounted computing solution with wireless capability means officers have realtime access to information, database files and GPS mapping systems.
General Dynamics Itronix GoBook® computers offer powerful performance, durability and ruggedness; wireless capability including WWAN, WLAN, PAN and GPS radios; security features such as a removeable hard drive and fingerprint reader; and ergonomic considerations.
Spokane Police Department: In the early afternoon on Saturday, April 21 2007, Officer Mosman of the SPD responded to a robbery call in North Spokane, Washington. With his lights flashing and siren warning of his approach, he cleared the intersection but, upon reaching the middle of the intersection, was hit broadside. The airbags deployed, the officer was injured, and the vehicle severely damaged. Remarkably, the GoBook® III mounted in the vehicle incurred minor damage and continued operating normally attesting to the durability and reliability of these rugged computers. Officer Mosman was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol had been using traditional non-rugged laptops for in-vehicle use since 2001. Major Steven Williams, Tech/Comm Section Commander, reported that on average, traditional laptops were replaced every two years with frequent downtime requiring repairs every couple of months, "The heat, vibration and moisture were wreaking havoc on the laptops, so we wanted to find a ruggedized computer that could withstand these demanding conditions."
