NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- New Albany Police have a new tool to help them on the job.
They now have the capability to fill out incident reports at new work stations installed in police vehicles.
An almost $40,000 Department of Justice COPS Technology grant enabled New Albany Police to install six mobile work stations.
When the software is installed at the end of the month, officers will be able to access a variety of information and determine if someone they stop has any warrants out for their arrest.
"It's gonna cut our work load. Guys can do their reports on there and in the future we may run drivers licenses and that sort of thing," New Albany Assistant Police Chief James Wildman said.
Prior to the work stations officers would have to fill out a written report and submit it.
From there it would re-typed and entered into a computer data base.
