When do we use this?
When searching for a vehicle on the handheld unit, the patrol officer has the ability to view several pieces of information about the vehicle. This information is displayed in the Detail section.
- During a typical plate search there is a lot of information at the patrol officers fingertips. Let's have a look at the Details section of the OPS-COM for android software. In this example we are searching for plate number APVK123.
