Police Force

Track and manage your assets. Secure and protect your police station, personnel and the general public.

Responsibility & Accountability

Police and Law Enforcement departments are constantly balancing their responsibility to keeping the public safe with a lack of resources and the need to keep within a strict budget. One of the main areas which takes up a lot of unnecessary police time and wasted costs is the management of mission critical assets. Many internal processes are still carried out manually which is slow and leaves the system open to human error. Assets get lost, damaged and stolen which is not only an expensive loss but could be life threatening if vital equipment is not available in an emergency.

Smarter Technologies Group’s asset tracking, monitoring and recovery solutions with real-time data and reporting over the Orion Data Network combat all of these issues and more.

Orion Technology for Police & Law Enforcement

Smarter Technologies Group’s Orion Data Network asset management and security solutions ensure that your asset base is optimally structured in the best corporate interest of the organisation and your key personnel and the general public are safe and secure at the station and out in the field.

Scalable RFID Technology & Broad Application

Our state of the art, first to market Radio Frequency Identification technology and GPS enables real-time monitoring and tracking over the Orion Data Network.

If you require an asset to remain within a particular area then you can program in pre-defined geofence locations and if the asset moves outside of these, Orion will immediately alert you with a text or call directly to your mobile device or pager or by email. Orion has unsurpassed scalability and a vast array of different applications across the police force.

You can measure energy usage; be notified when an asset or container has received any impact, shock or damage; determine the exact location of your personnel, asset or canine unit; receive updates on lone workers in remote areas and prevent loss and theft while also securing the entire perimeter of your station.

Smarter Technologies Group creates solutions that are tailor-made for the needs of each individual police force dependent on the size of the force, the types of crime that is prevalent in the area and all other critical factors which one of our experts will discuss with you in detail.

Global Coverage

The system comprises three different types of tag, GPS, non-GPS and switch tags for smoke detectors and fire alarms within the police station. Each item or person to be tracked is individually tagged and each tag emits a unique identification number to one of the Orion gateways which received the information and then sends the data you require to you over the Orion network.

Three types of gateway, Ethernet, mobile and independent satellite, ensure optimal global coverage so you can track your assets within your station; travelling between stations, in the field and in storage, throughout the entire supply chain. This gives you total 360-degree visibility 24/7, with total control and simplified management over all your assets and people, from mission critical equipment to suppliers and contractors’ products and personnel.
