This paper describes the design and evaluation of a prototype for mobile information provisioning in augmented reality (AR) for field officers of the Dutch police. Five different fictional cases were constructed in cooperation with officers from the Dutch police. These cases were comprised of dynamic as well as static hotspots that would occur naturally during field work. Three different versions of the early prototype were tested using the method of heuristic evaluation. The application was shown to three experts from two police departments. Evaluation of the heuristics, possible future improvements as well as AR viability considerations for field policing are discussed.
