ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University Police will begin using a new computer automated dispatch system Wednesday to improve efficiency and safety for their officers.

Tuesday A-S-U police trained on the new computer dispatching system.

In the past all their dispatches were recorded on paper and officer locations were often unknown.

Chief Roberson Brown says the new system is needed.

Brown said "Because of increased volume of calls for service. Officer safety. Policing two universities, Albany State also Albany Technical College. We have officers assigned to both areas."

The new computer automated dispatch system cost about $35,000.
