CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers can now run nationwide driver’s license checks, check vehicle registrations and issue citations right from their in-car computer.

Troopers have had in-car touchscreen computers in their patrol vehicles for a while, but the new system extends the reach of critical information. That includes a statewide road map and other features such as two-way messaging and state and nationwide warrant searches.

The program also uses GPS technology so any trooper or dispatcher can open a map in a real-time display to see where other patrol vehicles are anywhere in the state.
