Power Apps for Police and First Responders

Microsoft Australia, in partnership with Barhead Solutions, is pleased to bring you the Power Apps for Police and First Responders workshops. The Power Apps platform enables PS&J organisations to quickly deliver powerful, connected solutions to their command, community & first responders.

In Power Apps for Police and First Responders, attendees can participate to gain hands-on experience in building an innovative canvas app designed for the frontline.

With a focus on transforming a police officer’s pocket notebook, police agencies can leverage a range of digital capabilities to support them in the field. From recording detailed notes via keyboard or voice-to-text dictation, to quickly and easily searching and collating details for reporting and investigation.

With a focus on the mental health & wellbeing of first responders’ and increasing access to support and assistance, agencies and organisations can leverage a range of digital capabilities to support them in the field. From the ability to self-report and monitor their own mental health and wellbeing to generating reports on the overall health of the workforce.
