Read Police get in-car computers

From the Daily Telegraph

QUEENSLAND police are set to receive a new weapon in the fight against crime with 100 Maverick mobile computer terminals destined for the state's police vehicles.

The new terminals will allow police to access registration, licence, persons of interest and marine details from inside their vehicles.
The Queensland transport department chose Logica, a private global IT solutions company, to supply and manage the terminals which enable law enforcement personnel to receive critical information in under five seconds.

"The Maverick terminals will be a major weapon in the fight against the increasing number of unlicensed vehicles and drivers occupying the states roads," Queensland Transport director of information technology Paul Summergreene said.

Queensland is the first law enforcement organisation in Australia to provide mobile computing capabilities.

Maverick's processing unit sits in the boot of the car and is contained within a tough purpose-built case.

The units, designed and built by Logica in Australia, have been specifically designed to cope with rugged conditions and high temperatures.
