Did you opt for an 8.5-inch printer for eCitation? If so, you will need to safely mount your printer in your patrol vehicle. There are a few different mounting options for your Brother PocketJet® 7 Printer (click for video on the PJ7), and other patrol vehicle printers. These types of printer mounts for Law Enforcement include:

Where do you mount your printer in your patrol vehicle? This depends on your vehicle’s configuration. It’s all about finding the right solution that fits your specific vehicle. Each printer mounting solution has different benefits to officer comfort and efficiency.

What should be considered when evaluating printer mounts for Law Enforcement?

  1. The printer mount needs to be securely mounted to withstand the ever-changing speeds and conditions in your squad car. Safety first!
  2. When choosing a printer mounting location, be sure to avoid loss of critical access to the siren, radio, or computer.
  3. When long guns are mounted in the vehicle, guns can catch on armrest mounts upon removal. In this case, a standard mount or headrest mount might be preferable.
  4. Standard mounts can usually mount inside your glove box or directly to cages or partitions (typically found in SUVs), but this is vehicle-dependent.

We will ask the right questions to make sure you get what you need so your Officers can get the job done. We provide support for the life cycle of the product/solution. We partner with leading manufacturers (including BrotherHavisLEM, and Zebra) to set up the inside of your patrol car and meet your in-vehicle workspace needs.
