The team of nearly 170 officers at the Slidell Police Department had used the TOUGHBOOK 31 while serving the community of Slidell, LA located about 25 miles outside New Orleans. When Mark Collins, IT Director of the Slidell Police Department, was looking to upgrade its mobile devices, he knew simple and modern was the way to go. The department’s IT team of just two technicians needed dependable devices that could meet the needs of its officers. The goal was to deploy one device per officer (a 1:1 device-to-officer ratio) to reduce the need to sanitize or reallocate devices between shifts, and to give officers more flexibility to come and go between the office and the field.
