NBC5 Investigates: Distractions While Driving for Police Officers in N. Texas

According to an investigation done by NBC5 – Investigates, There are have been 18 crashes with the Arlington PD and 15 with the Fort Worth PD in the last couple of years.  Other departments across North Texas have also shown a relatively high number of crashes.  These crashes have been mostly due to distractions in the Police Cars – mainly there on-board computers.  Policy changes have been made that severely limit the use of these computers while driving.  One button responses are allowed, but anything more requires that the officer pull over.  In the past many departments simply urged officers to pull over for when texting more than one button responses; Now, it has become enforceable policy for many departments.
Scott Friedman, Eva Parks, Peter Hull, and Shane Allen contributed to the investigation report
