The Southern Arkansas University Police Department has begun utilizing the iPAD as a law enforcement Mobile Data Tablet (MDT) for its patrol vehicles. The iPAD is a cost effective way to integrate computing capabilities into the patrol function. The traditional law enforcement laptop cost approximately $3,800.00 while the iPAD cost per unit was $499.00. The iPAD also allows officers to have access to law enforcement applications that will allow them to be more efficient in performing their job duties. “We are excited about the integration of the Mobile Data Tablet into our operations and look forward to the cost savings that will be associated with this implementation” said Southern Arkansas University Police Chief Eric Plummer. The Mobile Data Tablets have allowed the SAUPD to streamline their processes and have allowed for the department to go paperless in a majority of their daily operations.
