The Carroll Township Police Department has new computers in their vehicles, thanks to Monongahela Valley Hospital. The police department maintains a substation near the entrance to the hospital’s Emergency Department. The hospital provided police with two Panasonic Toughbook computers, which can endure shock, extreme temperatures and dust or debris. They also can be used for self-defense and minor protection. The computers are equipped with software that enables officers to run license plate numbers; receive calls on the screen to reduce radio time; process an individual driver’s license and view an exact image of the license on the screen; and access the Internet to check for outstanding warrants when on traffic stops.
