SA Police Needs Chief Tech Officer To Lead Microsoft Windows Tablet Rollout


The South Australian police force is advertising for a chief technology officer to take the reins of its forthcoming mass rollout of tablet devices.

The executive will lead technical and service delivery for SAPOL’s information systems and technology service division, reporting into the director of IS&T Garry Dickie.

Within the CTO’s remit is data centres, servers, storage and networks, end user devices, applications, radio communications, service desk and telephony.

The position is a contract role for up to 60 months.

Late last month SAPOL revealed it was in the market for 855 Windows-based ruggedised tablets and accompanying accessories following a year-long trial of mobile technology.
