A study by IDC states that mobile computing is the most important component of any future information processing system. And really, taking a close look in our daily lives, you will recognize that there are more and more mobile computing systems and that these systems are more and more closely linked to a strong back-end system.
Decriminalization helped create dedicated enforcement teams taking care of all managed services of a city. This includes ticketing, towing, sanitation, animal control and any violation you can find in your code-book. This concept has now developed around the world with teams receiving extended tasks far beyond their original capacity as parking-enforcement officers. Today we often talk to law enforcement officers.
The on-street appearance of officers and police is considered a security measure of the city, making people feel more comfortable and safe. So although an officer’s major job is about enforcement, which is sometime viewed by the public as a punishment, they are now also seen as performing a much broader range of services that benefit the community. Officers in many places are now trained for community services and conflict resolution.
In public service, where any investment must last for years, a decision concerning electronic parking and law enforcement should be thoroughly researched and receive special consideration. Therefore it is our task as a developer, industry leader and specialist of handheld based law enforcement solutions to assist and support our clients.
As we listen to you, we will continuously be able to provide you with dedicated solutions guaranteeing your efficiency and compliance with today and tomorrow’s requirements in professional law enforcement
The automobile industry has grown to be one of the biggest in the world. With an ever increasing volume of cars on the road, the cost of the average parking space can be greater than the cost of the average car. Since the very beginning, there have been restrictions on where, when and for how long cars can be parked. As with any form of restriction, to be effective there must be a way to enforce it.
Politess Office â„¢ is a service tool, designed to help private operators, city authorities and police to enforce parking regulations efficiently and effectively. Correct enforcement ensures the respect of the parking regulations leading to improved public safety, increased traffic flow and increased availability of legal parking spaces.
Offence data can be collected by traffic wardens or police using a handheld computer which is capable of printing a paper ticket to be left at the vehicle. The intelligence of the handheld ensures that a variety of checks are made on the data, all but eliminating incorrect entries and ensuring the confidence of the court system for a valid fine. All important entry fields such as streets, citation details and special license plates are present in the handheld ensuring immediate feedback and correction for invalid entries.
The data is transferred from all of the handhelds, either overnight or immediately via GPRS, to a central PC from which it can be sent on to one of many different back end financial processing systems. This data is also archived within Politess Office â„¢ to be available for our flexible and powerful statistical reporting tool.
Some of the more recent features such as colour camera and GPS can dramatically improve both the accuracy and the reliability of the citation, necessary in todayâ€™s increasingly litigious society. Using mobile data communication, the units can even communicate in real time to one of the many mobile phone parking solutions available in the market today.
By automating the mobile data processing, the work of the officer on the street can be optimized minimizing data entry errors and increasing efficiency.
