The Dothan Police Department recently received over $8,000.00 from The National Homeland Security budget to beef up its efforts in creating a tamper proof ID system, not only for law enforcement, but all safety personnel. The new software is a windows based program with security features including various types of bar codes and graphics. It only takes 30 seconds to make the datacards, which seems fairly simple, but police say the new equipment can and will prevent thieves from making fake IDs. "We have had police officers lose ID cards in the past. The new cards system makes it very difficult to counterfeit them," says Dothan Police Chief John White. A new system he`s confident, will heighten awareness and aid in the nations war against terrorism. The police department has also received over $30,000.00 from national preparedness funds for new ditigal video equipment, which will store police cruiser footage more efficiently.
