New York police departments still rely on typewriters

By Jason Kessler
CNN.com

NEW YORK — In 2009, some units of the New York Police Department still function more like "Dragnet" than "CSI." They rely on typewriters.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne confirmed the department's continued, if limited, use of the 20th-century writing devices, explaining that they're mainly used for filling out property vouchers -- forms that officers must file when they seize items during case investigations. The typewriters also are retained in case a technological meltdown disables the NYPD's computers, he said.
