From handheld fingerprint readers to iPads, the Imperial County Sheriff’s Office is pushing new technologies by leaps and bounds.
Now officials are looking for the public’s help to move forward.
Through the last year, the Sheriff’s Office has been implementing new technological advances, like in-car cameras in the Winterhaven patrol cars, upgrades to the website, a new fingerprint system, crime reporting maps, a text message service and more.
“It’s exciting times,” said Jerry Godsey, scientific investigations supervisor. “We’re really moving, pushing the envelope where we can.”
