I made sure to play around with it a bit before handing it off to him and this is a really well put together app. It's professional for one thing all the way from it's presentation to the features it has for use. There's detailed logs of shift to track the hours worked. There's the event and built in map for every location where something was reported. Police Pad has something really good here and if you're in law enforcement this is the best app available at the moment."
