How does Onspot help law enforcement?

Written by Maritza Hernandez,

Federal, state and local law enforcement departments are equipped to respond to calls for service no matter the time of day, weather or terrain. As with their fellow first responders, law enforcement officers must arrive “on scene” safely and in a timely manner.

Winter Gear & Equipment

Departments located in areas prone to severe winter weather prepare with gear and vehicles that allow them to work in inclement weather conditions. There is gear used by all law enforcement officers whether in warm or cold climates. However, some equipment is determined by the environment and terrain.


In addition to equipping their officers with appropriate outerwear, many departments utilize heavy duty trucks and 4x4s to assist them traversing ice and snow-covered roads

Specialized Response Vehicles

Forensic lab units, emergency services units like Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) or Special Reaction Team, bomb squad units, and mobile command centers are just a few of the specialized response vehicles used by law enforcement agencies.


While these agencies respond to emergencies, they also provide preparedness information ahead of impending storms, as well as coordination, prevention and support from other man-made and natural disasters.

Why Onspot?


Traction devices vary from conventional tire chains to tire socks. They differ in convenience, efficiency, cost and maintenance. With Onspot, the driver engages the tire chains from the safety and warmth of the vehicle then safely drives on snow and ice to reach their destination.

There are many variables to consider when choosing a traction device so no single solution is ideal for all conditions. The final decision should be based on what best suits the agency and the driving conditions in your operating environment. If Onspot is the answer, we are available to help you make the best decision for your needs!
