Police smartphones getting smarter

Those police smartphones we mentioned the other day are going to get smarter, according to a tender document from the Metropolitan Police. It’s looking for new wireless devices that’ll read information from passports and bank cards, capture finger prints and ideally handle facial recognition and iris recognition. The handheld Mobile Identification Units – not necessarily ‘smartphones’ because they don’t need to include cellular technology – will send and receive data over the secure police network.
