Thomasville - The Thomasville Police Department recently received the latest version of Mobile Data Terminals for the police cruisers.

The MDTs allow officers to type in a car's license plate number before approaching the vehicle, improving the safety of the officers.

Chief David Huckstep says, "Primarily it makes our job a little bit safer to do, but also more efficient. It gives us the availability to have access to databases whether we have a state, local or national database in the car without having to go through the dispatchers, who are already overloaded with the amount of work they have to do."

Eventually the MDTs will also provide the exact location of each police car, in order for officers to be able to respond to a call faster.
