The latest crime fighting tool for Baltimore cops: A BlackBerry phone
The idea of using the 'Berry is to allow the officer to obtain and send information away from the screen in the patrol car, thus making the policeman more mobile. Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld II said, "In the last 15 years of law enforcement, we've trained cops around their vehicle. We've made their vehicle their mobile office. Except that now, they don't leave the office. This 'Pocket Cop' will help them move away from that car and break that tether."
