This year has been chockful of news! Here are some of our best moments!!
The Big Switch to Surface Tablets: This year we noted the trend among professionals who were making the switch from iPads to Surface tablets. Over a year ago, we had taken our cue from the business sector and joined with Microsoft to create a solution for law enforcement that would enable us to provide a tool developed specifically to boost productivity and efficiency for policing officers with highly mobile jobs. It’s been awesome to watch the continued rise in interest in these mobile tools in 2015! Read more here: Making the Switch from iPad to Surface and Loving it.
iRecord on the Road: This year we had the chance to start off in full swing touring the country with Microsoft. We had the opportunity to meet with industry leaders and learn what specific needs, capabilities, and possibilities technology can deliver in law enforcement and policing. Check out this article to learn which hot topics we got to unpack and learn about and where our tour took us!

Honoring Those Who Protect Us: iRecord announced Stephanie Tucker as the winner of our August-September Honor Those Who Protect Us Contest in October. We were motivated to set up the contest and reward one law enforcement professional with the tools and equipment to capture, share and utilize recording testimony. With her new Microsoft Surface Tablet, Tucker can do all of the following:
- Conduct high quality interviews on the go from anywhere.
- Interview a victim when and where the victim is.
- Capture vital audio/video content for professional analysis.
We have been blessed this year by all the love from you our clients and readers and look forward to another wonderful year ahead in 2016 and look forward to sharing how developing technology can continue to make a difference in our communities.
