Our Take: Can We Trust It?
In case of an emergency, touch glass. The iPad has indeed made its way into police cars and fire trucks. The Redlands Police Department, for instance, has become Apple's poster boy for the iPad on the police beat. The iPad lets officers view maps and photos, take notes, and interact with the community. As 911 services rely more heavily on the iPad and apps for critical functions, however, their notoriously understaffed IT departments will have their hands full.
