Police Fleet Management
Police Fleet Management
Society’s safety and security to a large extent rests on the efficiency of police work. Meanwhile, speed, coordination of actions and reliability of information are the key factors that ensure police officers are performing their duties properly. In most cases, time is very valuable and police have to be at the needed location as fast as possible to prevent theft or other crimes that can lead to even more tragic consequences.
For police work to be efficient, operators need to know the exact positions of vehicles and which of them are ready to respond to incidents. Thus, getting instant and correct information of police vehicle locations and duty statuses is vital. When an incident occurs, operators are required to identify the police vehicles in the nearest locations and which of them can be dispatched. It is critical for police not to waste time on communication while crime is in action.
As police vehicles are being operated nonstop, they need to get timely maintenance to eliminate the possibilities of breaking in the middle of duty. Overdue maintenance can cause disruptions in police service and bring unexpected expenses.
Skytrack offers integrators a solution to the above-mentioned challenges. Professional tracker FMC640 with 4G (LTE Cat 1) network coverage (including fallback to 2G (GSM) and 3G (UMTS) networks) can be set to determine location automatically and that will help to coordinate police fleets more effectively. All data will be transferred via VPN.
By getting information on the present police duty status, an operator can in a few seconds communicate with the available police officers and inform on the reported incident. Thus, trackers can significantly save time in assigning incidents. Also, setting reminders for maintenance based on vehicle mileage helps to avoid accidents on the roads.
Skytrack tracker can be used with a third part device that simulates different values. Connected via analog input, tracker can detect duty status (Ready, Busy, Lunch, or Going to incident) by differentiating voltage, e.g., 5 volts can be set for duty status ‘Ready’. This way, operators can observe duty status online. Police siren can be monitored with a professional tracker as well.
Additionally, it is very important for police to know vehicle door status, especially when the arrested persons are seated in the back. By connecting LV-CAN200 to tracker FMC640, police can get door status and much more – such data as mileage, fuel consumption, fuel level, RPM, engine temperature, and accelerator pedal position. These features of GPS tracker will maximize fleet efficiency.
For safety procedures, driver identification can be enabled, so that only the authorized person can ride a vehicle. There are a few ways to identify driver – by RFID card or iButton.
