Technology to be Expanded for Police Patrols in Ladyville

Edward Broaster

The increase in burglaries and robberies has been on the rise in recent weeks and the neighboring communities around Ladyville are helping the Police to keep their neighborhoods safe. In an interview on Tuesday, ACP Edward Broaster told us how the communities are getting security gadgets to help the police keep criminals away. A while back we showed you how the Police were using QR scan codes to better manage and document their patrols – well, it has been working out so well that other communities are giving the Police the tech needed to expand the project in their area.

“They are purchasing their own CAT phone so that the officers that does patrol within that area, we are going to be implementing QR scan codes. So, we will be mapping that area and we will be putting barcodes in different areas of that community, so that when the officer go and patrol they are patrolling the entire area. The community will know that they are doing the patrol, as well as the commanders or supervisors will be assured that the officers will be doing the patrol because we will be getting electronic data immediately when they do the scans.”



“How has that system been working for you? I know that in this particular Ladyville area a sort of pilot project was running. Is it working as you envisioned?”


ACP Edward Broaster

“It is working better than we expected. We are having a meeting tonight with residents of the Ladyville Area at Nans and we will be discussing that program for other areas in neighborhoods other than the business community within Ladyville. So, they too will be looking at purchasing a couple other CAT phones for us as well, so that our officers can go and do scans of the different neighborhoods in different parts of Ladyville area.”
