Today the City of Baltimore http://www.baltimorecity.gov/search/?cx=016856369251817325360%3A1wrq1qoz5cy&cof=FORID%3A11&q=Enter+Search#568 announded it will equip it’s Officer’s with Blackberry phones.

This will enable them to conduct  wireless outside the Police RMP warrant checks. Which appears to be a great concept and will improve efficiency. It’s being called the “pocket cop” see  http://www.bio-key.com/publicsafety/pocketCop.asp and http://www.abc2news.com/news/local/story/Blackberry-New-Tool-for-Police/nBSR46Yk3EmX1Nl0Q5wsag.cspx

The Baltimore Police Union http://www.fop3.org/ is not happy as the Blackberry have “GPS” so the supervisors can keep tabs on the Officers. See http://officer.com/web/online/Top-News-Stories/Baltimore-Patrol-Officers-to-Get-BlackBerrys/1$48237
