Have you heard about Pocket Sergeant? Revolutionising frontline policing

Published

on

Come on you must have heard of ‘Pocket Sergeant’ by now and if you haven’t you must download the app. Books and legal databases are a thing of the past, now it’s all about a couple of taps and the info is right there in your hand.

Pocket Sergeant was coined by Cleveland Police and Lincolnshire Police former police officer Paul Cooper.

Unsurprisingly the app is revolutionising front line policing within the UK. It is putting the technology right into the hands of the cops who need it after they’ve made an arrest.

Student Officers are using the app to assist them with their basic training and it’s really helping them with the exact information they need to pass their policing exams.

Special constables on independent patrol are using the app to assist with the law. It really is an app that is taking the policing world by storm.

Having won loads of awards the most recent being the Digital Champion Awards in London Paul Cooper remains grounded and focuses on exactly the tools that front line cops need to do the job they do.

The best thing about Pocket Sergeant it was designed to do exactly what Paul Cooper needed when he was a frontline cops on a response team, so really it was job tested and put the technology the officers wanted and needed into their hands.

Paul said, “I designed came up with the concept whilst living in Teesside and working for Cleveland Police. A victory for Pocket Sergeant at the Digital Champions Awards would also be a victory for Teesside, Sockmonkey Studios and of course for policing.”

“I designed the app to help others. The app not only assists police officers and staff carry out their daily duties. I have been received emails and phone calls from victims of crime, barristers, cadets, solicitors and those who act as appropriate adults – all of which find the app of use to them.”

Priced as £3.99, Pocket Sergeant is currently available on the Apple and Google Play Stores. Find out more information about the app by visiting the website directly at www.pocketsergeant.co.uk.

A-Ha! Digital Media is a highly professional and affordable digital marketing company based in Peterborough. They offer a range of services including Web Design & Maintenence, Logo Design, Graphics Design, Flyer Design and Business Cards.

A-Ha! Digital Media Director, Paul Cooper states, “Police Hour approached us and were keen to rebrand. In recent years they have experienced much growth without having a professionally designed brand. This was a perfect time for Police Hour to be re-launched. We suggested a new logo and we designed some eye-catching social media banners which reflect Police Hour’s professionalism and level of service.”

Having a professionally designed logo will lead to wide recognition of your brand and makes your business easily identifiable. Your logo should stand out amongst the crowd.

phlogo-jpgSpeaking about the process in redesigning the Police Hour Logo Paul says, “The process took around a week. There was a lot of debate as to whether we should keep the hour glass from the original logo. We decided against this. Instead, we introduced blue and red behind the Police Hour font. This represents lights on a police vehicle. You will also see a “twinkle” on the “O” in “Hour”. This represents the reflection of a wall clock. It has been a pleasure to work with Police Hour and look forward to working with them again in future.”

Thanks

The Police Hour Team.
