Predictive Policing Technology Joins Forces With Rugged Smartphone Hybrid

L-Tron Corporation introduces an innovative ruggedized mobile device coupled with proactive policing software designed to empower officers, improve public safety and save lives.


Victor, NY, USA: Effective July 23, 2013. L-Tron Corporation introduces its latest Law Enforcement solution, an innovative ruggedized mobile device coupled with proactive policing software designed to empower Police Officers, improve public safety and save lives. Honeywell’s Dolphin 70e Black and Remote Equipment Management with The Omega Group’s CrimeView NearMe Mobile App, is the first proactive Law Enforcement solution to graphically display a department’s RMS data on a single device that is tough enough to withstand the demands of the front line.

The Dolphin Black is a hybrid device, combining the modern appearance of a smartphone with the durability of a mobile computer. Pocket-sized and lightweight, with a 4.3” touch display, the Dolphin Black will stay charged throughout an Officer’s shift on-duty and is viewable in virtually any lighting condition. This distinctive device runs both Windows and Android™ operating systems and is resilient enough to withstand drops to concrete and submersion in water. Dolphin Black can do the work of several, including scanning barcodes on IDs and driver’s licenses, collecting and retrieving critical data, and accessing the internet.

The NearMe App provides Patrol Officers with the immediate “behind the scenes” information they need prior to arriving at a potentially dangerous situation. On the front lines, data is highlighted on an area map with color- and picture-coded flags depicting past crimes, ranging from speeding and traffic light violations to vandalism, theft, and violence. Authorized Officers and Detectives can zoom in or out to retrieve data from a particular neighborhood or an entire city, and view a particular location using Google Street View or Satellite View. Accident reports can be quickly retrieved, as can addresses, photos, and personal information for high risk sex offenders and individuals with open arrest warrants.

RAD DeRose, President and CEO of L-Tron Corporation, says, “With NearMe technology, Police Officers can access all of the information pertaining to them in a graphic, easy-to-interpret display. They can use the same type of intuitive technology to display Law Enforcement data that we commonly use to pull up a list of nearby restaurants or gas stations on Google Maps. Plus, with the Dolphin Black, Officers don’t need to worry about making space for a computer in their patrol cars or damaging their device in the midst of a hazardous situation.”

Issues of security are never a problem with lost or stolen devices, as Policing applications are cloud-based and remotely managed. Data analysis back at department headquarters is effortless, as detailed incident information including date, time, location, and frequency of crimes is available at the click of a button. Analyzing such data enables Department Commanders to proactively add patrols when and where there is likely to be additional crime.

DeRose adds, “The Dolphin Black is affordable and the ROI is considerable – both important aspects for departments to consider during tough economic times.”
