Police incident solved thanks to MIRTUSZ Mobile application

A lucky accident happened when Geometria could actively take part in solving a police incident successfully. The case in details: during work, the field tablet of a public utility company’s on-site technician was stolen, on which the MIRTUSZ Mobile application was running. Since the programme constantly sends signs to the central system that contain the GPS coordinates of the tablet’s current location, we could keep track of the stolen device’s route. So we only needed to guide the police, and this way, both the tablet and the thief have turned up.

The reason why this incident took more than one and a half hour was that the appropriate information could only be found in the system’s central database, which wouldn’t have been possible without the great support of the system operators. After this, with the GPS location displayed in the Map Portal, the police officer could be directed on the phone to the wanted spot. However, the process was slow enough for the thief to change his location and to start the cat-and-mouse game again. Finally, when the thief settled, the police could catch him.

The story involves more lessons. On the one hand, the incident was solved thanks to the fast, smart and effective assistance of Geometria’s operators, as well as the MIRTUSZ Mobile and Map Portal applications operated by them. On the other hand, it needs to be considered if it was useful to make the coordinates stored in the system’s database retrievable and directly accessible to the authorized users if needed.
