Clarksville Police Department adopts ticket printers
Clarksville Police Department is planning to go paperless in its reporting systems. The major aim of the department is to make the city court more efficient. The department uses the Watson program designed by DataDriven. The police chief, Al Ansley is planning for a paperless traffic. This will help to reduce the efforts required in issuing a citation and will also save time.
“That should eliminate the data entry that the city clerk’s office has to do, and it will expedite the traffic stops as well, the officer’s safety – it will improve that because the officer is out for less time. It takes him or her less time to actually issue the citation.” said the officer.
To initiate the process, the department has ordered 148 printers for all its patrol officers so that they can print a ticket on waterproof paper. This ticket can be even left on the windshield of a car on a rainy day without the risk of ink bleeding.
