UK police turn to RFID to track Tasers

More law enforcement groups are turning to RFID technology to track assets like hand guns and Tasers. The latest pilot project is in the UK , where a British police department is securing and tracking weapons with a solution from TAGSYS and systems integrator RFIP, Ltd. The two firms announced they have developed a new and innovative RFID-based weapons tracking solution to secure armaments for military, law enforcement and other agencies.

Called the Intelligent Drawer Armory System (iDAS), the solution utilizes embedded RFID technology to automatically record the issue and return of weapons to a secure storage locker. The solution not only automates inefficient manual weapons issuing processes, but also provides a complete service history for each weapon, generates audit reports for supervisors, prevents issue of weapons to un-authorized officers and improves weapon security.

In the current installations, the police department is keeping track of its Tasers using RFID-equipped storage cabinets. Each Taser is tagged with a high frequency TAGSYS Ario 370-SDM (Small Disc Module) RFID tag, and monitored using TAGSYS Medio P032 OEM RFID readers and antennas mounted in the cabinet.

“The TAGSYS Ario tags are very small, making them easy to apply to the Tasers without interference with the functionality of the weapon, but they also provide a reliable read range,” said David Armstrong, director at RFIP Ltd. “The tags are very rugged, which is important given the environments these weapons are typically used in.”

Previously, Tasers were issued by armories at the larger police stations in the UK. However, the devices are now being deployed at smaller precinct locations. As a result, local police stations need a compact and secure method of storing and issuing Tasers that is also cost effective.
