Wyoming Highway Patrol Selects Surveillance System Following a 4-Year Study

Dec. 21, 2006
Tasked with maximizing highway safety on Wyoming's 6,500 miles of interstates and primary and secondary highways, the Wyoming Highway Patrol engaged in a comprehensive 4-year study involving the testing and evaluation of seven competitive in-car video systems.

Following the review and assessment of the study's in-depth findings, a special Equipment Review Committee, comprised of the agency' s highway troopers, voted to select the system provided by ICOP Digital Inc. The system chosen by the highway patrol will be deployed in the agency's fleet of 225 marked patrol vehicles. The highway patrol has purchased an initial 82 ICOP Model 20/20 digital in-car video systems.

"The ICOP Model 20/20's user-friendly functionality, cost effectiveness, superb image quality and easy and safety-oriented installation in the dash, all coupled with the excellent customer service we have consistently received from ICOP, were critical determining factors that led to our decision to adopt the ICOP Model 20/20," said Captain bill Morse of the Wyoming Highway Patrol. "We are very pleased to award this order to ICOP and look forward to working closely with them over the coming year to complete the outfitting of our entire fleet."

Dave Owen, chairman and CEO of ICOP, noted the Wyoming Highway Patrol was awarded the grand prize by Law and Order Magazine for its state-of-the-art vehicle design, making the Wyoming Highway Patrol "an especially important new customer for ICOP."

"Lauded by the industry for the many advanced safety features and innovative design of their vehicles, Wyoming's opinion of our system, supported by this significant first order, is particularly gratifying and further validates that the ICOP Model 20/20 is indeed emerging as the in-car digital surveillance solution of choice by safety-conscious, tech savvy, law enforcement agencies nationwide," said Owen.
