Airport Police Using Blackberries

from the new-uses dept

For a while now RIM has been trying to expand how people use their Blackberry beyond just email. Now, it seems that police at Logan Airport in Boston are using Blackberry pagers to get more information about various suspects. They say it’s easier than going through a dispatcher, who they don’t want to bother. That’s funny, I thought it was the job of the dispatcher to take calls like that. Plus, I wonder how fast using the Blackberry is. I have this image of the police officer standing there fiddling with the device as the suspect runs away.
