The governor of the state of Sao Paulo, Geraldo Alckmin, announced that all the cars of the Military Police in Sao Paulo will be equipped with tablets by 2012. The use of the devices, according to the government, will help streamline patrol work for the military police. The tablet, manufactured in Brazil, is already present in 4,000 cars circulating in the state capital, and should reach all 11,000 units by January 2012. Via the touchscreen, the police can check the situation of documents and licence plates, criminal records through the ID numbers and Social Security and gun registration.
