SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — The Sandy Springs Police Department is taking a page from the television series "24" with a new piece of technology it hopes to have in place by winter.
Chief Terry Sult wants to use a nearly $22,000 grant to purchase a video conferencing system that could link the city with hospitals, private industry and other city departments, in case of an emergency. For instance, it could have been helpful during January's ice storm.
