The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has recently upgraded almost 1,600 of its patrol-car terminals to mobile data computers in order to provide their officers with a reliable tool to aid in their law enforcement activities. A key component of the new computers is Faronics Deep Freeze. Deep Freeze's reboot-to-restore technology instantly protects and preserves original computer configurations, eliminating routine IT maintenance while allowing complete, unrestricted workstation access. Rather than bringing in laptops to be re-imaged or replaced, creating downtime for the LAPD patrol car, the user can quickly reboot the laptop to return it to its original configuration every single time. The laptops are always protected against configuration issues, software conflicts and operating system corruption.
