Highway Patrol Improves Public Safety Through GPS Upgrade
Whether your car breaks down on the interstate, or you’re the victim of an impaired driver, there’s a state trooper ready to help across nearly 80,000 miles of North Carolina roadways. But first they need to reach you. Until recently, their response time depended in part on your ability to identify your location quickly and accurately. Your cellular service also had to cooperate long enough for you to share that information.
“Now when we receive that call, it automatically populates on a map and shows us where you are,” says Captain Kevin Owens, Unit Commander for the North Carolina State Highway Patrol (NCSHP) Technical Services Unit.
