Law enforcement has come a long way in recent years. Through advancements in technology, police officers and other law enforcement personnel now have the capability to capture speeding cars and quickly process criminals in a way that's much more efficient than ever. In fact, some states
have even started using automatic license plate readers to quickly scan the license plates of passing vehicles to check for criminal activity.
As recently as only a decade ago, writing a ticket was quite a long process. It took time to phone in the driver's information and then manually write out a ticket. However, by using the laptops that police patrol cars are equipped wth as well as a wireless ticket printer, it reduces the time police officers need to spend at traffic stops and other police calls.
Wireless ticket printers are designed to be easy to operate. They require virtually no maintenance from the officer, and are even quickly re-loaded with paper. They are compact as well as sturdy, to ensure that they will always operate at peak performance. This is very important, considering the many different types of calls police officers respond to during the course of a day.
As technology continues to change and law enforcement adapts to these changes, it's not uncommon to find them using tablets such as the iPad, in place of a standard laptop computer in the patrol car. Many cities even use smartphones. The bottom line for these police departments is public safety. Whatever will allow them to quickly process tickets gives them more time in the field. More time in the field means more time to find and arrest those who are breaking the law.

Police agencies across the country are facing the same challenges as everyone else when it comes to saving money and improving job productivity. One way some agencies are accomplishing their goals on these challenges is with the advances in technology.
New mobile computing tools have been making the lives of officers and support staff easier and adding mobile police printers could be a way to expand these efforts.
Officers using mobile printers can see two immediate benefits. First, officers will spend less time on the side of the road writing out tickets as well as following up to see that all the paperwork gets processed back at the station. That means they can spend more time on patrol. The speedier police processing of all that paperwork will also help speed up the court process.
The second benefit will be accuracy. Computerizing the ticket writing and printing process will cut down on the number of errors. The less errors there are, then the less the number of tickets that get thrown out.
These are just two of many benefits from adding mobile printing technology to the tools provided for patrol officers.
The technology can also be applied in other ways. Mobile police printers could enable officers to more quickly distribute information on alerts and safety issues, or provide crime victims with copies of key information such as security tips and support services.
Police officers using mobile computers and printing will be more efficient in producing needed documents. That means they will have more time to focus on their primary duties which is patrolling the streets and protecting the community.
