CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper Police Department purchases Getac brand computers for all of their officers.

The Casper City Council authorized a $47,675.21 purchase of such computers for the police department during their Tuesday, Feb. 18 meeting.

“The majority of sworn officers have received their computers and this purchase will allow for new sworn officers to also have a GETAC computer assigned to them,” Police Chief Keith McPheeters said in a memo.

Funding for the purchases will come from the police department’s fleet budget. The preferred vendor for the purchase of the computers in HP, Inc. “as this is a qualifying purchase as part of the NASPO value point contract pricing.”

Further details of the purchase request are available in the council’s work packet.
