Abstract

This project, sponsored by the Worcester Probation Office, analyzed a probation officer's information needs in the field. The group considered the office's technical and financial requirements to develop a wireless database for the department's use. The system permits officers to instantly access pertinent information regarding clients on probation, such as the threats posed to the officer, while out in the field. The resulting wireless system met the sponsor's need for a reliable, user-friendly and cost-effective information system.
