AUSTIN, Minn. — It’s been a process a year in the making.

But now, things are moving forward on possible technology upgrades for Mower County and Austin Law Enforcement.

The Mower County Board is approving more than 260,000 dollars towards electronic upgrades for the agencies.

It will affect their records management system and computers in dispatch and in squad cars.

The older systems have older software, which has resulted in problems with computers crashing.

County leaders say this will speed things up for authorities on the job.

“There is a severe lag of time when people run drivers licenses to when they get that information back,” Mower County Sheriff Terese Amazi said. “That will be definitely shortened.”

The county will be funding half of the money for the project.

The other half will come from the city, which has yet to approve the funding.
