CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local government is running new software to help officers work more efficiently.
Chippewa County started using TAC10 Software in late February. It lets officers access a central database that has shared law enforcement records. Dispatch can also use it to communicate with officers. It utilizes a Virtual Private Network connection that an officer reaches through an existing internet connection. Officers can connect to the network at a law enforcement building or a squad car.
The county says the software will save time for officers and make law enforcement safer. Lake Hallie police applied for a grant that eventually provided the initial funding for the project.
