Seattle Police Stream Video from Connected Cruisers to Stations at Critical Times

April 13, 2021

Challenge — The Seattle Police Department’s long-standing commitment to protect and serve the public is evidenced by the officers on patrol, its fleet of high-tech cruisers, and safety-focused digital tools. The agency was planning to install new evidence and video capture platforms and utilize essential applications — tools meant to decrease operational inefficiencies, reduce officer overhead, and boost overall safety. The IT team needed to upgrade its old in-vehicle connectivity system, which lacked key capabilities and was about to be discontinued.

Solution — Seattle Police chose to deploy Cradlepoint’s NetCloud Service for Mobile and ruggedized in-vehicle wireless edge routers featuring built-in LTE, GPS, robust Wi-Fi, and support for national public safety networks.

Benefits — A comprehensive solution of technologies by Axon Enterprise, Inc., and other partners, connected by Cradlepoint via cellular broadband, ensures critical video footage and other data can be securely connected to the Internet 24x7. With a highly reliable networking solution in place, the department can support existing, planned, and future upgrades to cruisers and connected devices.
