Arkansas Highway Police Deploys WatchGuard In-Car Video System
Friday, January 11, 2019 | Comments

The Arkansas Highway Police deployed WatchGuard’s in-car video system, which automatically uploads recorded events to its on-premise or cloud-based evidence management system via a variety of wireless networks.

Prior to implementing the WatchGuard system with Long Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity, officers were required to visit one of 10 wireless access points positioned throughout the state and upload recorded video events captured over the previous seven days.

“It wasn’t very efficient having an officer drive over an hour to upload video,” said Arkansas Highway Police Chief Jay Thompson. “So, that’s when we began looking into connectivity technologies we could leverage like the state’s FirstNet (First Responder Network Authority) wireless network.”

Recorded events are received at the department’s Little Rock headquarters for review, storage and sharing.

“An important but burdensome administrative task assigned to each officer has been completely removed through the adoption of technologies made available to us by WatchGuard and the state of Arkansas,” said Thompson. “When you look at the time savings alone, it’s just astronomical.”
