Letter to the editor

This is in response to a Government E-Business poll question: If your

jurisdiction received a block grant for homeland security, how would you

spend it?

On an in-car computer system that would help officers have the most

updated information.

Our department could not afford to place computers in all of the squad

cars. We only have seven vehicles.

Using a radio system, every person with a scanner would be able to receive

information. Also, information is not passed on as needed to officers (those

on other shifts, days off, etc.).
