ELECTRONIC CITATION MOBILE DEVICES:
For the past five months, Yardley Borough’s elected officials and staff have been active in fund raising to purchase an electronic citation system, more commonly known as a “E-ticketing” solution. The manufacturer we are contracting with is United Public Safety (UPS) from Fort Washington, PA.
Today, Chief Joseph Kelly III, announced through the generosity of five Borough businesses and at NO taxpayer expense, Yardley Boro raised the required funding and have signed a contract for two units. Our thanks to Apex Financial Advisors, Inc., Liberation Way, Icon Clinical Research, Red Nucleus Solutions and one anonymous donor for their generosity and support.
The UPS solution is a hand held, all in one printer, scanner and data capturing technology. The benefits of this equipment include increased traffic and pedestrian safety, officer safety, detection of false credentials automated e-filing with State Courts and faster issuing of citations.
The units will be deployed over the next couple of weeks and will eliminate hundred of hours of data entry by officers.
