Icop 20/20-W "Based on the city's size, location, and amount of critical infrastructure, it is an important part of the nation's fight on terrorism," said Dave Owen, CEO of ICOP Digital.

After an 18-month pilot program, New Jersey's largest city will initially outfit 53 patrol vehicles with the ICOP Model 20/20-W systems. At each of the five precincts as well as police headquarters, servers and wireless access points will be installed for video upload and data storage. The police department will use ICOP's 802.11n wireless transfer technology.

The agency also intends to implement ICOP LIVE, which will provide situational awareness and tactical oversight during critical situations.

Newark is home to transportation facilities such as the Port of Newark, Newark International Airport, and Newark Penn Station.
