Currently when not using the computers, officers need to call into the airport’s central communications center to check or verify a driver’s information. While this system is effective, the computers free up time for the busy central communications personnel and give officers a faster response time.
The in-car computers are another step in delivering good policing by ensuring officers have the necessary information to manage and resolve situations in real time.
Also, watch out speed demons. RDU’s police department has installed a new radar system in cars that is top of the line for speed enforcement. This system gives officers the ability to track speed in both directions and leads to better traffic enforcement. In the end this gives travelers a better traffic flow as they drop off or pick up friends and family.
