Functionality of the Police Mobile application is completely configurable based on the requirements authorized by the agency.
The application consists of a central monitor screen surrounded by a top tool bar and a channel bar to the right side which provides
selections for the channel in a selection bar located on the left side of the monitor screen. The top tool bar usually consists of the
dispatch functions similar to those commands defined in the CAD system. Below are some commonly used commands:
- Start New Call
- Status Commands
- Retrieve a Report Number
- Automatic Traffic Stop Call
- Log Feature
- Directions to Calls
- Call History
- Day / Night Feature
- Access to the Internet
- Application Features as Required by the Agency
The channel bar, located to the right of the central monitor, drives what is displayed on the central monitor and can be configured
to support the following views on the central display of the Police Mobile:
- The User’s Current Call
- The Status of All Units
- The On-board Local Mapping System (KeyMap)
- Google Map Functions
- All Dispatched & Un-dispatched Calls for Service
- State and NCIC Queries
- Chat Capability
- Property Check System
- Be on the Lookout ‘BOLO’ Notifications
With the use of the channels feature, the user can switch channels without losing capabilities and location when the user returns
to the original channel. While displaying a channel, the user has access to several features associated with a particular channel.
The features are presented to the user on the left side of the monitor screen on what has been defined as the channel feature selection
tabs. The tabs are configurable to fit the needs of the agency per channel.
The Police Mobile application ensures thorough communication and promotes initial and back-up support by allowing users to see all calls
for service and the units assigned to those calls while also allowing for the self-dispatch of units to a dispatched or an un-dispatched
call for service. Police Mobile can be configured to support multiple law enforcement agencies and provides for the viewing of all calls
for service regardless of agency.
