Tyler Police Get Electronic Ticket Books

No need for a pen and paper.  

Wednesday morning, the Tyler Police Department went electronic with its ticket books.  The electronic ticket books, which will be used by motorcycle officers, improve officer safety and citizen convenience.  Now, when police make a traffic stop, they have all the information they need on the computerized ticket book, like possible arrest warrants.  The city can also process the ticket much faster.  

"If you get a ticket, you can come by the court and that day it's processed," said City of Tyler Chief Information Officer Benny Yazdanpanahi. 

Yazdanpanahi also said that it is especially convenient for visitors from out-of-town.  Instead of having to wait a day or two, the ticket is processed that day.  This makes it easier to pay for your ticket.

The city has purchased 15 ticket books for motorcycle officers, but the city says it plans to buy additional books for patrol officers and the parking patrol.
