ROK Homeland Security Engaged in Further Trials With U.S. Government Law Enforcement Agencies
ROK Americas, the U.S. subsidiary of ROK Global PLC, the mobile and web technology development company, recently announced it will undertake two further trials with key law enforcement and police agencies on the Texas-Mexico border.
These latest trials are in addition to the contracts already awarded to ROK by U.S. law enforcement agencies.
Commenting on the latest developments, said Jonathan Kendrick, chairman and CEO of ROK. “Following in-depth trials earlier this year which resulted in contracts being awarded to us, our ROK Homeland Security service will now undergo further trials with two more law enforcement agencies in Southern Texas."
ROK Homeland Security is a mobile phone-based service which provides real time, secure technologies to assist law enforcement officers in the gathering and management of information in a variety of formats including encrypted data based communications and improved spatial awareness capabilities. This is particularly useful in counter-terrorism operations, criminal investigations, counter-narcotic operations, physical security, evidence-gathering and field communications.
“We know that the use of highly efficient technology is absolutely critical in the fight against terrorism as technology really is the only advantage we have. Given that ROK Homeland Security dramatically increases operational efficiencies in a highly cost-effective manner, we are delighted to see more and more government agencies adopting our service across the United States and elsewhere in the world," added Kendrick.
