En­abling tap and flow of data

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa Po­lice have re­cruited new mem­bers to their team and they are nei­ther hu­man nor an­i­mal.

Twenty front­line of­fi­cers have been is­sued with iPhones and iPads.

Toko­roa Con­sta­ble Sy­mon Marama-Lyon got his iPad last week and said the tech­nol­ogy would en­able po­lice staff to process in­for­ma­tion faster as well as hav­ing ac­cess to po­lice data­bases on the job.

‘‘ I’m still learn­ing the ropes. It will mean we are able to bet­ter serve our com­mu­nity while we are out and about, and hope­fully it will cut down the pa­per­work,’’ Mr Marama- Lyon said.

Se­nior Sergeant Graeme Hill is pleased with the new ac­qui­si­tions.

IN­TER­NET BEAT: Toko­roa po­lice will also be pound­ing the in­for­ma­tion high­way with their iPads.
