The Mesa County Commissioners this morning approved the purchase of new tablets for Mesa County Sheriff's Office deputies to use in their patrol cars.
The workstation upgrade will cost $255,670.
The tablets have been tested and approved by local MCSO deputies. Total, 65 will be purchased. The upgrade is the result of a year's worth of research, officials told the Commissioners this morning. The tablets are built to withstand extreme temperatures and should make it easier for deputies to take photos and write and file reports.
In other news, the Commissioners:
- proclaimed Dec. 15, 2015, Bill of Rights Day. Members of Sons of the American Revolution accepted the proclamation.
- received an update from Mesa County Surveyor Patrick Green.
