Alexander Police Department getting technology boost

July 25, 2012

The Alexander Police Department is updating its procedure for cataloging police reports. Soon, all accident and incident reports will be placed on computer systems, Alexander Police Chief Horace Walter said.
Walter said he was happy to “finally” implement the new system. Well before Walter’s administration began in 2010, officer reports were hand-placed into filing cabinets, but now they can go straight into the database. All the reports put in the database will also be put on a backup system.
