    I was watching one of the reality cop shows (about San Diego I think) and they had one of those things and were able to confirm the guys identity right there on the street within minutes.


    An agency a few town over has a machine like this in HQ, takes about 5-10 minutes for the check to come back. They just "place" their hand palm down and it scans the prints.

    We still have to ink prints and it's a pita.

    lion-auto belts would be nice, but arent they kinda slow?! it would be my luck that it would jam befor ei tried to get out on a chase

    ditch-that sucks about the ipod, maybe it's the FORD you are driving, not the ipod LOL

    leanG-i really just LOLed when i read that, you may not be able to get any darker, but that heat can be a b*tch

    so it seems like before you get all that high tech stuff, besides taylor, you guys and gals would like more things to make the day easier or equipment up to speed, very understandable....so no one wants nitrous in their cars or EMP to shut down the cars around you(not yours) during a vehicle chase or even a purge in you car, like a nitrous purge, that would spray tear gas into crowds of hippies....i mean rioters? lol

    That's an easy one. Tinted windows. It's hot and sunny down here. I've seen other departments with it, but our department doesn't allow it. Its a good thing I can't get any darker.

Great community policing technique and gets the kids to think I am "cool".

    Man, I tried using my ipod but it made my radar error. I need to talk to the local ford guy to see if he can hook me up with a tape deck.

    ask80, we are a 25 man department and only have 3 old toughbooks with windows 98. Now that's bad.

    Roughrider28, in our CV the front cup holders are like you said blocked by all the crap but in our center console where the radios and light switches are there is two big cup holders built in.

    99 Fenix, no ipod but a bunch of guys have sirius or xm installed in the cars.

    If I could add anything to my CV it would be those old auto seatbelts, this way whenever I get in or out in a hurry I don't get stuck in the car.
