CapWIN Receives Praise during Demonstration
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.
The Capital Wireless Information Net (CapWIN) is a program located in the University of Maryland’s Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) that was created by, and continues to operate under the direction of a coalition of law enforcement, fire/EMS, and transportation agencies in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia to advance data communications across agency, jurisdiction, government, and discipline boundaries.
