We are delighted to celebrate that Police Scotland at the Police College at Tulliallan Castle in Kincardine, Fife, Scotland have just upgraded their Hydra Suite to Hydra in the Cloud.
This is very exciting and to make it even more special they have the only polished oak suite in the world! The college is part of a 200-year-old castle and in many ways was the original home for Hydra.
A legacy lives on…
Sadly Chief Inspector Peter Willis who recently died, was so helpful in the very early days of helping the design of the Minerva system, a public order simulator original operating in 1996 in the Metropolitan Police.
Peter had designed a laser disk system that was able to display video in different rooms. Based on his early concepts, Hydra came to life and the two centres worked closely together ever since.
He would have been thrilled with the functionality of the new system. We very much look forward to developing exciting training with Police Scotland and are so grateful for all their enthusiasm and support
