California police departments to deploy 'game-changer' app - latimes.com
The JusticeMobile application allows law enforcement officers to check state and federal criminal databases from the field using a smartphone or tablet, California Atty. Gen.Kamala D. Harris announced Monday. Although New York City police have tested a similar program, Harris' office said California was the first to use such an app on a statewide basis.Police can use the secured app to check a suspect's background, without using patrol car computers or radioing other personnel back at the station to track down the information, officials said.
