Effective March 1, all marked patrol cars of the Haleyville Police will have laptop computers. This will enable officers to check data, generate reports, and issue e-citations. Haleyville Police Chief Kyle Reogas (picture at left) said, "This will make the patrol officers' job easier." Also, the department has obtained 5 radar guns and 3 portable breathalyzers thanks to a grant from Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.

The ADECA/TSS grant totaled $14,000. Reogas added that all patrol cars will have radar. The portable breathalyzers afford the department the ability to check blood-alcohol levels in the field. The Alco-Sensor FST, made by Intoximeters Inc., offers both direct and passive sampling and  produces fast, reliable, accurate results. It weighs less than 8 ounces.
