Keeping accurate records is vital to every department, but perhaps none so much as Williston Police.

Last week, Chief Dennis Strow asked for, and received, permission to spend more than $19,000 to acquire new software.

The package will allow the department to better maintain reports, including incidents, accidents, arrests, investigations, ordinances and activity logs. Software was bought three years ago in anticipation of the Levy County Sheriff going to the same program, but it never happened and the software is less than adequate.

This software, the chief added, is Florida specific and will have search features. Only President Jason Cason opposed the purchase, citing concern about the cost.
