Police in Cumbria are getting new technology that helps keep them on the street longer and out of the office by allowing them to access data from the station while on patrol. The small handheld computers also allow the officers to input data without having to come back to the office.

Cumbria's Police force was announced yesterday as one of the places where a grant from the government would be put to use to help officers patrol longer and reduce the red tape needed to perform their duties.

The handheld systems are expected to save officers about 30 minutes per shift by allowing them to send and receive info from the streets. Using the device reports can be entered on rowdy behavior or crash statements.
