ROK Americas, the US subsidiary of UK-based mobile and web technologies, applications and services company ROK Global PLC, has today announced its mobile security software, developed in-house by ROK, has been utilized in a real-time, real-world counter-narcotics operation by a US law enforcement agency.   

Commenting on the use, Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman and CEO of ROK said “Following recent operational successes, ROK Homeland Security technology has been utilized by law enforcement officers in a major counter-narcotics operation on the Southern US border where officers have reported they were able to improve their efficiency in the processing of evidence associated with this type of operation by 300%.”

ROK mobile security software provides real-time, simple and secure technologies to assist law enforcement agencies in the gathering and management of information in a variety of formats using cutting edge technology including encrypted data based communications for use, in particular, with regards to counter-terrorism operations, criminal investigations including anti-narcotics operations, physical security, and field communications.

In addition, ROK Homeland security software provides immediate facilitation of secure, evidence-grade field interviews from a standard issue mobile device. This feature, along with near real-time analysis of narcotics trafficking from a remote location, is an example of law enforcement specific technology simply unavailable until now.

“The fantastic response from our law enforcement partners in several countries across the world has proven that ROK Homeland Security technology saves time, saves money and saves lives and, as a result, we are focusing our resources on a much faster deployment of the service and on a greater scale than we had originally anticipated.” Added Kendrick.
