A groundbreaking Proof of Concept for the digitalization of police work
Each year, the Saarland Police record about 33,000 traffic accidents. In order to take administrative duties out of the hands of emergency personnel, this proof of concept in mobile policing evaluated the potential for optimization using mobile digital tablets and standard technologies. The software of choice for digital data collection was HybridForms Police by icomedias, a form solution. This proof of concept (POC) for mobile policing is a collaborative project between the Ministry of Interior and Sport, the State Police Board of Saarland, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Landesbetrieb Daten und Information (LDI) Mainz, Microsoft Germany, Avanade/Accenture, and icomedias with the Saarlouis Police Department. The DFKI has accompanied the test phase scientifically with its comprehensive potential analysis of efficiency enhancements and its analyses of user acceptance. The results will be presented to the public at the National IT Summit.
