NYC Cops Test Hand-Held Record-Retrieval Devices


The New York Police Department introduced hand-held devices yesterday that allow patrol officers and detectives to access department records even in the field, reports the New York Daily News. The department gave 130 cops the new technology as part of a six-month field test.

“We want to put as much high technology as possible literally into the hands of our officers,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. In seconds, cops can retrieve warrants, wanted photos, orders of protection, and other records on the Panasonic devices.
