4 December 2007 @ 8:00NYPD gets iPods
New recruits of the New York Police Department will receive iPods loaded with course materials, says Reuters.
The iPods are “fully loaded” with subject matter including criminal procedure, New York State Penal Law, warrants, ethics and community policing, the department said on Monday.
Outfitting recruits with gadgets instead of books comes in handy because many students take public transportation to class.
“Now a recruit can watch a class on ‘search and seizure’ while going home on the subway,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said in a statement.
The current academy class includes 947 recruits and is scheduled for graduation on December 27.
