New technology for OVPD includes the iPad Mini

ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Oro Valley Police Department is testing out new technology for reporting traffic violations and accidents. 

Thanks to the addition of iPad Minis, OVPD says times have been shortened for officers to fill out reports, enabling them to get back into the field sooner.

The iPad Minis are used for e-tickets and e-crash reports. Thin Blue Line Reporting has developed an operating system that records data for field reports. 

The program was developed to cut down on the time the officer spends at the scene of a traffic accident or filling out a ticket for a moving violation.

Oro Valley police use a bar code scanner to scan a driver's license and vehicle registration, allows the information to be automatically input into the system.  There is also an option for officers to print the report or ticket from their vehicle or at the police station.
