The Meigs Police Department has gone high-tech with 15 new computers from the Department of Defense.
The computers are locked into the department's patrol cars, and can access the Georgia Crime Information Center and other records to more quickly run tags and drivers' licenses.
Officers in the department say the new equipment will make things much more efficient.
Lt. Christopher Luckey says the additions are much-needed and welcome, "With us being a small community, it's a big step for us because with [the technology], it gives us a sense of access to be able to run tags and information on wanted people right there from the convenience of our car[s]."
The Meigs Police Department was also the only recipient in Southwest Georgia of a COPS grant in 2010.
The grant is awarded by the Department of Justice for excellence in community policing.
