Read NIJ Article on Mobile Broadband Impact on Policing



Visit https://nij.gov/topics/law-enforcement/operations/Pages/mobile-broadband-data-access-has-positive-impact-on-police-operations.aspx to read a new article from the National Institute of Justice, "Mobile Broadband Data Access Has Positive Impact on Police Operations."

Advances in modern technology have turned the days of a police officer's handling a call, then driving back to the station to file a paper report into nothing more than scenes from old television shows.

This article looks at how the implementation of dedicated mobile broadband technology changed one police department.
