The Anaheim Police Department is making significant strides with the use of advanced technology.

Anaheim PD officers are constantly using technological tools such as Blackberries and Toughbook laptops throughout the day in order to make fighting crime and law enforcement more effective.  
 
Police officers use the Toughbooks for checking license plates, finding photos, checking what is currently happening amongst all available and on-duty cars and officers, as well as communication between all officers.
 
“The technology and resources available for the Anaheim PD allow faster transmission of information and a single location for all important information for officers, as well as keeping radio available for important matters that take priority,” said Sgt. James Rodriguez. 
 
Most Importantly, the Toughbooks are capable of finding information regarding arrests, warrants, and other significant information that is incredibly fast and accessible.
               
This technology makes certain issues such as searches, arrests, and communication between officers are more accessible, quicker, and easier, police say.
