Meet the Printek VehiclePro 420 Printer

Working in a patrol car means operating in cramped quarters. That’s why outfitting a police vehicle with equipment and technology requires careful thought and consideration. It’s important to be sure that each piece of equipment A) serves a necessary purpose, and B) can be secured safely and unobtrusively. 

The Printek® VehiclePro 420 is a 4” mobile printer designed specifically for on-the-go public safety applications. Once safely installed in the patrol vehicle’s center console, the VP420 requires minimal space, yet performs significant functions to assist Officers in serving and protecting their communities. 

A printer for traffic safety applications

Since eCitations are a significant part of an Officer’s road patrol responsibilities, Printek designed the VehiclePro 420 printer with practicality in mind. The center console installation frees up valuable space in the patrol vehicle for other equipment and devices.

The VP420 integrates with other eCitation equipment, such as the 4910LR Driver’s License Scanner, rugged laptops and tablets, and mounting equipment. In fact, the VP420 is a drop-in replacement for most legacy mobile printers with the simple addition of a mounting plate to match the existing vehicle center console. Officers can print traffic tickets, parking tickets and more from the convenience of the roadside.
