The New Zealand Police will have a new tool to fight crime. They will be issuing their frontline officers with 6000 iPhones. 3900 of them will also receive an iPad in an outsourcing deal with Vodafone worth $159 million over ten years, including cellular charges.
According to the NZ Police chief information officer Stephen Crombie, Apple’s iPhone and iPad lines were chosen because of officer feedback after an 11-month trial. This should help everyone in the police force sync up and allow them to fight crime more efficiently.
The trial included over 100 staff in four districts, who trialed smartphones, laptops and tablets over an 11-month period.
