New tech helps Tempe PD fight crime

January 11, 2013

The Tempe Police Department says new technology is helping them combat crime. 

Police say they used a new reporting system to catch a robbery suspect earlier this week.  Officers say they can now wirelessly upload information related to a crime to immediately alert all police to new information.  Witnesses gave police the description and license plate of a suspected purse snatcher Sunday. Officers used the system to identify the suspect's car and took him into custody Monday.
