Dear PoliceOne Member,
During the past half-decade, police use of smartphone applications has exploded. There are apps to replace your ballistics tables, your Swiss Army knife, and your Black’s Law Dictionary. Yes, you can even read PoliceOne on our apps for Android and iPhone.
This month we’re investigating mobile applications designed specifically for — and in some cases, conceived by — law enforcement officers. Tim Dees has put together a pair of roundup articles on apps developed for the two major operating systems, and I’ve examined how two law enforcement agencies are already using a brand new mobile application. And of course, we feature a roundtable discussion of industry experts on how mobile apps are affecting law enforcement.
