Burbank police to get digital recording devices

September 16, 2011 | 10:14 am

Burbank police are pushing to get a major technology upgrade that officials say will give the department better tools in the field and will end an antiquated system of record keeping.

Burbank Police Deputy Chief Tom Angel told the Burbank Leader the department is discussing developing a request for proposals for a new database for records and management because police don’t believe they are getting accurate response times and don’t have the means to track the information digitally.

Burbank Police Capt. Mike Albanese said the department is in the process of acquiring new audio recording devices that will assist in investigations and reviews.

The devices serve a double role in protecting officers with a digital account of what happens in the field, whether it’s a traffic stop or something more serious.
