Barnet Police Campaign
The Barnet Bluetooth Project ‘Blueteeth’
Jibajaba is focused on providing the police service with the best quality hardware and software for delivering pioneering Bluetooth communication technology, backed up by first class service.
Paul Evenett, having served thirty years within the Metropolitan Police, has been using Bluetooth in a wide variety of differing policing environments for over a year.
Those of you who are unfamiliar with opportunities that Bluetooth can bring to your communication strategy, are welcome to view an article written by Paul published in Jane’s police review 4th July 2008. This article highlights the benefits that this equipment can bring to many policing situations.
In August 2007 we had an idea that Bluetooth may be useful to present public information content in the form of crime prevention advice and contact details to callers at police stations.
A search was made for a device. A number of options were exploreand and It became clear that expert advice together with comprehensive support from a supplier was essential.
