Cornish Police to use Bluetooth

Posted by Admin on January 30, 2009

Cornwall seems to be a hive of mobile-related activity at the moment. What with the hospital sending text reminders and now the police to use Bluetooth. The Bluetooth system is, as reported by the website, going to ‘use 21st century technology to get important messages out to young people in certain places, at certain times’.

From what I can see, it’s actually the same system that we reported on being used by Police in North Yorkshire. But that doesn’t mean it is any less worthy an idea.

Inspector Mark Bolt, of West Cornwall Police sees a lot of potential in the system:

“There are so many things we will be able to do. We will be able to issue appeals for information about crimes; we will be able to highlight police campaigns; even to let people know our phone number (08452 777444).” And as he said, “it is aimed at a proportion of the population, such as youngsters, under 24-year-olds, for whom traditional methods don’t normally work.”
