The Support Services Division consists of the Traffic Bureau, IT/Training Bureau and Records Bureau. The Division's primary responsibilities are maintaining a comprehensive computer and records system; Accreditation; planning, research and development; recruitment and training; and Grant Writing. Due to the limited resources that most agencies of similar size confront, all Officers within the division have additional responsibilities. Mobile Data Laptops: All of the department's patrol units are now equipped with mobile data computers. The computers provide officers in the field with vital and life saving information. Officers have the capability to determine if a vehicle and/or persons may be wanted for various crimes throughout the nation. Officers are now better prepared to handle situations having this vital information before becoming involved with potentially dangerous subjects. Officers can link to Motor Vehicle computers and determine the status of a driver's license and registration. All of these requests are returned to the patrol car in seconds. With the computers installed in patrol cars they can communicate directly to headquarters and talk "real time" to any units already in the field as well. This keeps officers on the road, thereby providing the highest level of service to the community. Officers are also to complete reports through their mobile computers and can electronically transmit them to headquarters.
