NYPD trades old Nokia Windows phones for 36,000 new iPhone 7s

Used to be, police officers relied on training, intuition, some contacts in the underworld and their partner to take that bite outta crime. But in New York City, they just got a new tool; Apple iPhones. The NYPD is handing out iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets to the men and women on the beat, to the tune of about 36,000 handsets. The iPhones are replacing an aging fleet of Nokia Windows phones.

So far, the changeover is getting high marks from officers and their superiors. One officer told the New York Daily News that it was the “ultimate tool” to have as a patrol cop. Police will use the phones to take photos and video and of course communicate with each other, citizens and headquarters. NYPD officials say they’ve already seen a 14 percent drop in response times by officers using the new phones. We just want to know what kind of iPhone cases the cops are using.
