Until recently, if any one of the 900,000 people who live in Cambridgeshire called the police, an officer would show up equipped with a traditional notepad and pen. The officer would take notes and return to the station to type them up, wasting resources and losing valuable time that could have been spent out in the community.
Now Cambridgeshire citizens will see a lot more of their local police officers. Cambridgeshire Constabulary officers are spending as much as two additional hours per day out of the police station. Working with Microsoft partner Black Marble, Cambridgeshire Constabulary implemented enterprise class mobile communications with Windows devices. Using Black Marble’s tuServ app, powered by Microsoft Azure, each officer can input and access information in real time wherever they are, whether they’re using a phone, a tablet, a laptop or a desktop PC.
