The AK-12 is the new law enforcement mobile workstation from Jotto Desk. It features a smooth-glide computer mount so you can slide and lock your computer into an ideal work position.

With 12 inches of sloped space, you can safely and securely mount your laptop, communications equipment, siren and light controllers, while also freeing passenger leg room and maintaining a center-mount location for your laptop.
The RAM MDT-Mate mounts mobile data terminals for a wide variety of vehicles.

Its no-drill design supports a display at or near the center of the vehicle dash. The new 8" flanged upper Tele-pole enables optimized positioning, giving you the freedom to choose the configuration best suited for your vehicle. RAM-Mounting Systems—206/763-8361 www.ram-mount.com
