Raytheon announced that Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD) vehicles equipped with new mobile data computer systems (MDCs) are rolling out. LASD patrol cars, motorcycles, prisoner transport vehicles and SUVs are outfitted with the Raytheon-integrated computer systems.

The $19.9 million investment will upgrade the department’s 1987 mobile digital technology. The computer systems will enhance access to more than 2,400 field units to new public-safety technologies. Deputies will now be able to use the Sheriff's Data Network, intranet and other criminal databases from their vehicles. They can also access a variety of law-enforcement information including fingerprint databases, GPS-expedited routing to emergency calls and other critical resources officers need to efficiently serve the public.

Raytheon's new Public Safety Regional Technology Center, opening in Downey this winter, will help the agency maximize the capabilities of the system as new technologies become available. Raytheon is also planning a new UCLA Center for Public Safety Network Systems that will create a collaborative research forum for academia, industry and public-safety agencies.
