CRISFIELD, Md. - The Crisfield Police Department has begun installing computers in some of their patrol vehicles, according to Police Chief Michael Tabor.

Chief Tabor says the Department received a Bureau of Justice Grant for $13,500 from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention.

The Department says the cameras will allow officers to complete accident reports, police reports, driver's license checks, wanted checks on individuals, registration checks, as well as much more, all while remaining inside their patrol cars. Additionally, the Department says officers will be able to communicate statewide through a radio system via Capwin & Linux systems to other Law Enforcement throughout the State. The Department says this will allow some
officers to remain on the street rather than in the station.

Chief Tabor says this technology helps to bring the Department into the 21st Century.

As more funding becomes available, Chief Tabor says the Crisfield Police Department will be applying for additional funding with regard to the placement of these computers in all police vehicles in the department.
