It's a dream come true. That's what Pitt County Sheriff Mac Manning says about 50 new mobile computers recently installed in patrol vehicles
The computers have been on the departments wish list for several years.
Manning says advances in technology and a drop in the price allowed them to make the purchase with the help of federal funds.
Now that they've been installed deputies jobs are a whole lot easier.
One of the most useful aspects, the fact they can file reports from behind the wheel and don't have to come into the office.
The computers also have a built in mapping system that shows details about the areas officers are responding to. Plus deputies have access to statewide and national records.
