During  a recent demonstration of the new Maryland Fiber Optic Network to Governor O'Malley, Senator Mikulski and several state and local delegates at the  Maryland State Police Barrack in La Plata, Maryland, CapWIN received unexpected  praises.

The  demonstration included access to the new live video feeds via CapWIN/Mobile Data  Computer.  Sgt. Julio Valcarcel conducted the demonstration and answered  several questions from both the Governor and Senator Mikulski. “I was very  pleased to hear Governor O'Malley mention CapWIN specifically by name, and  Julio did a nice job of promoting CapWIN's role in supporting if officer safety  in the field,” said Acting Executive Director Roddy Moscoso.
