Panasonic Toughbook Arbitrator 360

The Panasonic Toughbook Arbitrator 360 combines a lot tech into a solution that can save lives or help put bad guys away.


This in-car digital video system can capture everything that’s going on around a police car and allow officers to view it all on their Toughbooks. Officers can control the Arbitrator 360 cameras and recordings by tapping on the screen. Video from the system can be streamed back to dispatchers so they can accurately describe the situation to other officers responding to a call.

I have a special interest in police tech because my brother is a drug task force officer and I’ve seen how tech can have such a positive impact on his work.
