First, NRW Police added Windows Phone to their IT-approved list of smartphones for their employees because it met their security requirements and works with their existing infrastructure. Next, recognizing the power of delivering breaking news and information to mobile devices for ther constituents, NRW Police worked with expectare, a Microsoft partner, to build an app that delivers breaking news, search warrant issued, and police station locations to their employees and users. NRW Police and expectare were able to design and build the app in a week because of their familiarity with Microsoft technologies and developer tools.
