Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services (NT Police) have issued a Request for Tender for the supply and delivery of iPad accessories. It follows an RFT in early February 2014 for the supply of 1250 iPads and 50 iPad minis. NT Police is due to deliver the hardware to its frontline in June 2014, which will make it the first police force in Australia to deliver tablet devices on an organisation-wide basis. Mobile technology was flagged as a project for 2013-14 in its 2012-13 Annual Report noting that mobile technology solutions will be developed “to make policing more efficient and ensure our frontline officers are just that – available on the frontline to assist and respond to community needs”. The RFT closes 12 March 2014.
