TEMPE, Ariz., Sept. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Public Sector, a division of Insight Enterprises Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT), announced the launch of a project to equip 900 Memphis Police Department vehicles with rugged laptops, cameras and the required mounting to capture audio and video in and around the vehicles.
The $15 million award will be completed in phases, with the 900-car fleet to be fully outfitted by 2019. The initial phase calls for 400 new vehicles to be outfitted by early 2016, with 125 additional vehicles completed in each of the subsequent years.
Insight's extensive experience in implementing and servicing public safety based solutions drove the award of this significant contract.
"The Insight team works across multiple technology based platforms to create best in breed customized solutions for Public Safety professionals," said Dave Cristal, VP/GM of Insight Public Sector. "We feel privileged to work in concert with our key partners to develop, configure, and deploy a solution that meets the specific needs of the Memphis Police Department."
"In the last few years, many agencies have deployed body cameras and dash cams to its officers in an effort to create greater transparency. Both body cameras and dash cams have been credited with changing the way officers and the public interact with one another. I also believe that the introduction of these systems to this department has the potential to improve community relations, lower the number of citizen complaints, defend officers against false accusations and provide greater agency accountability," said Tony Armstrong, director, Memphis Police Department.
The solution Insight is deploying with the Memphis Police Department is powered by Getac hardware and Veretos software.
"This in-car video system will help create an efficient and effective computing and video capture solution for the city that will significantly aide in evidence collection, officer reporting and overall productivity," said Scott Shainman, senior director of sales for Getac, Inc in North America. "The system will include a Getac V110 rugged convertible mounted in the car for easy viewing of dispatch and reporting applications, in addition to Getac's Veretos™ Mobile Video System."
