EXTON, Pa., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WPCS International Incorporated (Nasdaq: WPCS), a leader in design-build engineering services for communications infrastructure, has announced that it has been awarded a contract from the Connecticut State Police for up to 400 in-car digital video systems to be installed over the next three years. The contract was awarded by the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services.
WPCS will deploy the Panasonic Toughbook® - Arbitrator™ 360 in-car digital video system. The Arbitrator 360 fully automates the recording, transferring and storing of high dash quality digital video, allowing police officers to focus solely on their duties. Once the record button is pressed, either manually or through as many as 16 designated triggers, the preceding video is included to ensure all evidence is captured. Connecticut State Police Troopers will monitor the Arbitrator 360 videos on fully-rugged Panasonic Toughbook laptops mounted in their cruisers, and resulting evidence can be transferred automatically to troop servers using wireless Internet hotspots.
Jason Rosa, Bureau Chief of Research and Information Services for the Connecticut Department of Public Safety, commented, "We are committed to improving the technology used by our Troopers, which includes the implementation of the WPCS-supplied Panasonic solution as a means to drive the continuous enhancement of both public and officer safety throughout Connecticut. We chose WPCS through the State's competitive bid process because of their ability to thoroughly address our unique requirements and to deliver a comprehensive solution. We look forward to the completion of this project."
"We are very pleased to be selected for this important project," said Myron Polulak, Executive Vice President of WPCS. "We see the Connecticut State Police as leaders in the move to deploy mobile video solutions that will increase officer safety and that of the public at large. We intend to work diligently to provide the highest quality of services for the Connecticut State Police and participating agencies within the state."
