No kidding

The city is plunking down nearly $1 million on typewriters for its keystroke cops.

That’s right — typewriters.

Despite the adoption of high-tech equipment that can read license plates from the air and detect radiological events before they happen, manual and electric typewriters continue to be used throughout the NYPD — and they won’t be phased out anytime soon, officials told The Post.

In fact, just last year, the city signed a $982,269 contract with New Jersey-based Swintec for the purchase of thousands of new manual and electric typewriters over the next three years — some of which retail for as much as $649 apiece.

In both cases, NYPD expenditures account for the bulk of the contract, sources told The Post.

Although most of the NYPD’s arrest-report forms have been computerized, cops still use typewriters to fill out property and evidence vouchers, which are printed on carbon-paper forms.

There are typewriters in every police precinct, including one in every detective squad.

“It just doesn’t make sense that we can’t enter these [vouchers] on computer,” one cop told The Post.

I don’t know whether to laugh or to LAUGH :mrgreen:
