The Alice Police Department is preparing to implement a new technology to simplify ticket writing.

Officers learned how to use these new Motorola ticket devices Tuesday.

With them, officers are able to scan a driver's license and scan the barcode on a motor vehicle inspection sticker. The device then connects to a small printer, and prints out the ticket.

"They won't have to enter the citations manually, they'll just have to import the citations and they'll already be there in our software," said JoAnn Ramon, Municipal Court Manager.

The Alice Police Department says all officers should be trained and the new system implemented within a week.
