The Queensland Police Service (QPS) is about to start a trial of electronic traffic infringement notices through its QNotices iOS app.
The app will be released to a pilot group of 40 road policing command officers throughout the state.
The purpose of the trial is to confirm the efficiency of the app and supporting systems before a progressive release to other officers.
"The electronic completion of traffic infringement notices via QNotices is significantly faster, and uses an intuitive and user-friendly interface designed specifically for front-line police officers," deputy commissioner Steve Gollschewski said in a statement.
QNotices will complement the existing QLiTE app suite which provides for the in-field capture and real-time sharing of intelligence information, move-on directions and roadside drug testing.
“The number of officers issued with QLiTE devices will soon exceed 4000 and increase to at least 5400 in the 2016 financial year,” Gollschewski said.
QPS said it expects a range of benefits from the app including a reduction in intercept times and officers gaining access to real-time in-field information to identify who they are dealing with.
The app will assist in the "intelligence-led" deployment of officers to high risk locations, and the system supports automatic printing of infringement notices through a back-of-house service provided by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, QPS said.
