FOP has entered into an agreement with Njection.com to allow for the installation of GPS trackers in police vehicles nationwide.
Portland, OR April 1, 2008 – Njection.com has acquired permission from the world’s largest organization of rank and file sworn officers, the Fraternal Order of Police, to install Global Positioning Systems (GPS) devices in the vehicles of patrol officers, undercover cars, and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) vehicles. The information will be available on the Njection.com Website giving its visitors a detailed view of where police officers are in their area and how well they are responding to crime in their neighborhood.
“This level of transparency is highly unprecedented.” says Shannon Atkinson, President/Founder of Njection.com. “It is very heartwarming to receive this level of access for such an organization. We feel honored to be in such an exclusive arrangement.”
Not only will the “Near Real Time” information be available on the website (http://njection.com/coptrak) , but it will be available via Windows Mobile 6, Blackberry Mobile phones, and Palm Mobile Phones as well for anyone to access.
