Law Enforcement Agencies Adopting DURABOOK Rugged Laptops and Tablets

Fremont, CA – April 26, 2017 – GammaTech Computer Corporation, the North American branch of Twinhead International Corporation, today announced it ended 2016 with broad sales to Law Enforcement customers across the country. The DURABOOK R11 tablet, SA14 semi-rugged laptop, and R8300 fully rugged laptop were purchased by Police and Sheriff departments in Missouri, Connecticut, Georgia, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington. Customers include the Denver PD, DeKalb Country Marshall’s Office, Sweetwater PD, South San Francisco PD, Branson PD, Clallam County Sheriff, Chino Valley Police, Falls Township PD, Liberty County Sheriff and Pecos County Sheriff.

“Technology is an integral part of modern law enforcement,” said Sergeant Kelly Kennedy, Pecos County Sheriff. “Providing my deputies with solutions they can rely on under any circumstance allows them to focus on the job of public safety. My DURABOOK solutions do that at a price point that allows the Pecos County Sheriff Office to maximize its technology investment.”

DURABOOK rugged computers are trusted by law enforcement agencies in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and North America. Police and Sheriff offices in the United States are using DURABOOK rugged computing solutions for a wide variety of law enforcement applications, including improved situational awareness, computer aided dispatch (CAD), data capture, license plate checks, database access, communications with dispatch and other units, automated vehicle location (AVL), mobile GIS, incident management, evidence documentation, report filing, eCitations and more.

“Law enforcement workflows have become increasingly digitized to drive efficiency, increase transparency and improve public safety,” said Tom Wang, President, GammaTech. “One of the greatest challenges agencies face in their efforts to digitize is the cost of deploying solutions with constrained budgets. While brands like Toughbook® and Getac are known in the rugged market, their high cost can limit purchasing power. By delivering the reliability, functionality, ROI, TCO, and value law enforcement customers need, but at a price that is more attractive than others in the market, DURABOOK solutions are becoming an increasingly attractive option for our Police and Sheriff Department customers.”

The DURABOOK R11 rugged tablet PC features an 11.6” TFT LCD capacitive touch display and a powerful 5th generation Intel Broadwell Core processor, providing exceptional power for workers in public safety. It is the lightest 11.6” rugged tablet PC in its class at only 2.73 pounds, while remaining tough with Military Standard 810G and IP65 certifications for drop, shock, dust and water resistance. Paired with its detachable keyboard, the R11 becomes a flexible 2-in-1 solution. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/DurabookR11
