Every day, police officers and emergency responders expose themselves to multiple points of liability. Policy and procedure is put in place to mitigate this liability, and continuously reformed as new risks emerge.
Technology continues to deliver new tools to law enforcement, but with each new tool, the officer’s focus is distracted from the situation and directed, in most cases, to a screen or keyboard. SAINT Connect allows law enforcement officers to take advantage of an even broader range of technologies without distraction. SAINT reduces the likelihood of traffic accidents and protects the lives of officers as well as those around them.
