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.”
