Knoxville — The Knoxville Police Department received seven Toughbook laptop computers Thursday morning, courtesy of MidAmerican Energy.
The department hopes to use these units to reduce the need for officers to go to the Police Station to complete reports.
The department also hopes to use the computers to file citations and other paperwork with the Clerk of Courts Office as part of the electronic filing program that began earlier this month.
"The Police Department is extremely grateful to MidAmerican Energy for the donation," the police's press release says. "We want to thank MidAmerican Energy employee Bruce Lefler for letting the Department know these computers were available and helping KPD apply for them."
