Tulsa PD utilizing Toughbook U1s

The U1 is essentially the handheld version of Panasonic’s line of ruggedized Toughbook laptops

TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Police Department recently outfitted their squad cars with Panasonic’s handheld rugged computer, the Toughbook U1.

The U1 is essentially the handheld version of Panasonic’s line of ruggedized Toughbook laptops, which have been used by police departments worldwide for years.

The U1, which runs Microsoft’s Windows operating system (making it very easy to adopt for most officers who have previously used the platform), was installed in Tulsa’s fleet along with Panasonic’s Permanent Display Removable Computer (PDRC).

Officers simply detach the U1 from its in-car harness — where it connects to the PDRC — and bring it with them on traffic stops. Officers can use the device to barcode scan a driver’s license and wirelessly send the information to a printer.

Corporal Will Dalsing said the combined U1 and PDRC system met Tulsa PD’s requirements that a new system replace their old, immobile computers, run on their new wireless network, and support the Bazos e-Citation software.

“It’s a highly effective solution for officers to conduct operations and communicate efficiently from anywhere in the Tulsa area,” Dalsing said.
