NEWS Domestic violence alarm links to police cars in Sangamon County, IL
Victims of domestic violence in Sangamon County, IL, now have access to “domestic alarms” that are linked to computer terminals in the county’s police cars. The alarm is activated by a device that can be worn or kept in a purse. Police will be alerted almost immediately on computer terminals mounted in their squad cars. Not only is response time cut, but police are better prepared to deal with the incident once they arrive because they can use their terminals to access information about the victim’s situation while they are responding to the call.
HTE, Orlando, FL, provided the special interface, along with the consulting services, system modifications and some of the hardware that was required to connect the devices and squad-car-terminal systems.
