To much fanfare, last week California State Attorney General Kamala Harris, San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee, and San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr formally launched a new smartphone app for police officers in the Golden State called JusticeMobile. Collaboratively developed by the California Department of Justice and San Francisco's Police Department (SFPD), the app has been described as a technology which will transform the law enforcement community. With field testing and the official roll-out complete, every police officer in the city will now have smartphone access to real-time SFPD internal records, as well as those from California Department of Justice and federal law enforcement authorities. The rest of the state to follow in the coming months. More below, including a link to a Power Point of JusticeMobile screen shots:

Comment: Exciting development - I truly hope the potential matches the hype. Consequently, this is going to be one worth watching as the app is implemented across the rest of California.
