iPatrol for UK Policing

iPatrol offers the power of Niche RMS operating on Android Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Airwatch. Deployed to over 4000 plus officers in South Wales Police and Gwent Police.

iPatrol was designed by police, for the use in day by day police duties. Key objectives are a Use Case driven user experience available on the small form factor (SFF) Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Stylus for data entry. The force also selected for the deployment to use Airwatch as the EMM platform, Airwatch SDK, and NetMotion for network connectivity. This combination meets the UK's Home Office security and privacy guidelines including full Audit control.

This integrated solution combines access to a range of back office systems including Niche RMS, PNC, Hopewiser gazetteer, QAS, SunGard Control Works and Steria Storm Command and Control and is integrated with GPS Tracking providing date, time and location of entries made as well as encrypted device side storage of history. A wide range of integrated forms including Stop Search to Intel Submit, Witness Statement, etc. The solution is fully integrated with an Electronic Pocket NoteBook (ePNB) thus eliminating the need for paper based notebooks. iPatrol was developed to operate both On-line and to a more limited extent, Off-line, given the Welsh terrain and areas lacking cellular coverage.

iPatrol is updated with twice annual releases, first to a pilot group and then force wide such that the agile process meets a large scale deployment. The smartphone format optimises the officer's experience by minimizing keystrokes through the use of the stylus and and screen touch. Data is stored from Person, Vehicle, and Address search results for re-use in form completion and data input. Other smart features include dialing phone numbers, looking up addresses and using device capabilities to perform satnav functions. All locations can be filled with automatic address lookups, or manually entered. All device activities are saved to the ePNB with date and time stamp and GPS location. Data recorded in ePNB can be searched or used again, and added to, and accessed for several weeks on device, and for years on the server. The ePNB is also able to accept notes, sketches, camera images and voice dictations.

Currently under development is iPatrol to operate on the larger form factor (LFF) Windows Tablets.
