B.  Recommendation to purchase Panasonic Mobile Data Terminals (MDT).

Kevin Frost, Director of Information Technology, presented the recommendation to purchase Panasonic Mobile Data Terminals (MDT), as outlined in a memorandum dated February 27, 2019. The Department of Information Technology is upgrading the MDT's to the latest model.  There are currently 60 MDT's, the majority not meeting required specification for the County's CAD/RMS software.  The current MDT's do not have integrated GPS which will be required to maintain the automatic vehicle location functionality.  The current model CF-31 is approaching end of live and won't be supported in two years.  The recommendation is to purchase the newest model MDT, CF-33 which includes a full five-year warranty, with a full refresh in five or six years. The Councilmembers were in agreement to approve the purchase at the regular meeting starting at 7:00 p.m.4
There being no further discussion the work session was adjourned at 6:30 p.m.
