"Not only did the RFID technology make us more efficient in terms of finding and keeping records of our equipment, but it also transformed the way that we purchase, receive and issue equipment. We found much smoother ways of processing these things so that we can do a better job."

For over 50 years, Richardson Police Department has been providing services to citizens in trouble, emergency responders in the field, and other public safety agencies. It serves a city of just over 100,000 people and is amongst the largest of 20 police departments in Texas with 156 sworn officers.
