According to the City of Richfield's latest "Out and About in Richfield" feature, the department has made a number of upgrades in the last few months, and is still planning for more in the near future.
"Technology has kind of taken over law enforcement over the past couple years," Chief Todd Sandell said in the video feature. "We can get more technology it gives officers more time out on the street to do what the citizens want them to do, patrol their streets."
Among the upgrades include automated license plate readers, or LPRs, which are being paid for with a $30,000 grant the department recently received.
Watch the video above to hear all the news on the new technology.
