Default Police Car Question? (ArrizX)

Okay, well to day when I was walking home from school I walked by a police car and noticed that it had a Dell laptop in it.

So I was wondering is there a standard for the lappys in squad cars or is it just what the specific city can afford?

What the city assigns. Statewide, most likely. If you wanted to ask ArrizX, PM him.

Because I know that ArrizX parents are cops but he lives in the same state as me. So I wanted to know if it was just the city or state or country wide standord. Thats why I made a thread Jon

As a former firefighter, most the time it depends on what kind of grants and whatnot the state/city will give them. Also depends on what specific "department" within the police department it is. For example. On the bomb squad we have laptops with built in GPS and sat internet, so we could be out in bfe and not have an ethernet/wireless etc... connection for 100+ miles but still have internet access.(Compliments of the feds. We are required to go through FBI training, and are in constant contact with them.) an as for the laptops... $$$$$$$$ very nice.
