Pea Ridge P.D. to Purchase New Tech with $92,000 ASP Grant

PEA RIDGE, Ark. (KNWA) -- - The Pea Ridge Police Department is getting an upgrade of 21st century technology to help officers in the field.

Arkansas State Police have awarded a $92,000 grant to the department for the purpose of installing mobile data terminals in patrol cruisers. Pea Ridge Police Department Sergeant Michael Lisenbee said the city's leadership is helping to advance the capabilities of the department by pushing for these technological upgrades. 

"We're moving in the direction that makes the job easier for the officers, provides a higher efficient level of service to the citizens of our town and it makes the officers safer when they're out there," Lisenbee explained. 

Lisenbee pointed out the new equipment will help streamline the process in which officers conduct traffic stops, and it will also carry the same effect when inputting information about violations to be handled in court.
