Increasing Police Presence...Without the Added Cost

How do you quantify the value of increasing the amount of time police officers spend out in the community? I asked one of Tropos' customers this very question. With ~1,500 officers, he estimated that by providing police officers with the ability to have high-speed access to the same applications in their vehicle as at the precinct enables police to spend approximately 100,000 more man hours per year in the field serving the community -- that equates to about 50 additional officers per year! More police, no additional cost -- now that's real value!
