NYPD issues iPods to academy recruits

NYPD iPods for recruits

Academy recruits for the New York City Police Department will receive an iPod loaded with training material. Since many of the recruits use mass transit in their daily travels to school, officials decided it would be easier to provide materials in digital format, rather than requiring students to carry around masses of books on the crowded subway system. Reuters says that recruits will be able to see content from subjects like New York State Penal Law, warrants, ethics, and community policing. The announcement said that the information that will be stored on the iPods will not contain any security sensitive information, so that if the iPods are lost by students, the NYPDs operations will not be compromised.

"Having coursework available on an iPod affords our Recruits a convenient way to review subjects when preparing for their exams," said Raymond Kelly, Commissioner for the NYPD. "Now a recruit can watch a class on "search and seizure" while going home on the subway."
