Raytheon and L.A. Sheriff's Department Get Rave Reviews From Consumer Electronics Show
Thousands of tech heads, journalists and bloggers came out to Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this month, and Raytheon was there to support a key customer, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The largest sheriff’s agency in the world attracted a horde of onlookers with a new laptop computer system installed in a black and white patrol car.
With it, deputies can now access in seconds a variety of crime-busting technologies, including mug shots, DMV photos, FBI records and arrest warrants, all from within the car. Raytheon integrated all of the software to give the LASD its first field policing technology upgrade in more than two decades.
In all, 2,400 cars, SUVs, prisoner transport buses, motorcycles and patrol boats will be outfitted with the new mobile data computer systems.
