Abstract: The following study has been conducted in the pursuit of a Masters Degree of Science in Information Technology. The functional purpose of this study was to examine three basic concepts (officer efficiency, safety, and arrest rates) within law enforcement and to attempt to determine if a specific type of information technology (wireless data computers) has had any positive impact on those concepts. To that end, the author has reviewed the history of technology in law enforcement and surveyed a group of patrol officers in the Wilmington Police Department. Difficulties associated with gathering research data from law enforcement agencies has also been noted and described. The results garnered from statistical analysis are covered in detail.
