The New York Police Department will scrap 36,000 Windows Phones that it gave police officers over the past 2 years because the devices are already obsolete and cannot be updated.
And if you are looking for the one person to blame that would be NYPD Deputy Commissioner for Information Technology Jessica Tisch. “She drove the whole process,” sources have allegedly said.
Of course, this could have been easily averted if the decision was based on the opinion of a panel of experts rather than one single person's preferences.
What makes matters even worse is that those obsolete Windows Phones are used at the NYPD, one of the busiest police departments in the world, and one tasked to save human lives.
The NYPD has said that it can only discuss the sad situation after Tisch returns from vacation on Monday.
