Future plans include a GPS interface instead of chalking tires downtown. The officer will enter data into the interface imbedding the time.
No guesswork needed on the officer or vehicle owner's part, according to Swicord. The tickets include the actual time.
Also, easy ticketing in patrol cars is on the horizon. Swicord said the system allows officer to scan a driver's license, which inputs all of the information onto the ticket that prints out like a receipt.
The chief of police looks to implement a Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program into Baldwin County schools as well.
G.R.E.A.T. is an evidence-based and effective gang and violence prevention program built around school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curricula. The program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership for children.
