Quicker Response - Reduce problems - Save time and increase situational awareness using GPS

RavTrack helps improve your agency's productivity, officer safety, and your community's security. GPS tracking shows you the "big picture" of how your public safety vehicles are utilized and where your officers and first-responders are located. It speeds dispatching, and automatically identifies where resources are needed.  It allows you to see where all vehicles are right now in truly real-time, not a few minutes ago.  Updates can be as often as a few seconds.

For the first responders, the RavTrack exclusive capability of an in-vehicle display of all other vehicle's location will reduce response time, clarify real-time the situations, and provide valuable status information of backup and support personnel.

Raveon's RavTrack AVL system is one of the only AVL systems on the market that does not require any infrastructure, has no monthly recurring costs, does not rely on cellular networks, and does not need internet access to operate. It is an exceptional choice for public AVL systems, and has many unique features for public safety AVL .

Police and Fire Chiefs can monitor the location of all vehicles to ensure that:

  • Response and assistance is dispatched to the correct location.
  • They are patrolling the neighborhoods they are supposed to.
  • Not entering into keep-out areas.
  • Address the concerns of citizens about frequency and duration of patrols.
  • Recall location, speed, and direction information for court evidence.

Raveon's GPS transponders work with many 3rd-party GPS tracking software applications, displays, and dispatch software.
