LEIN Audit – Barryton PD had a LEIN Audit on June 15th, 2017.  During the audit it was found that we had 4 minor violations which had to be corrected.  Two of the them were paperwork/Process issues which have now been corrected.  One was an issue we have no control over which our dispatch center is working on a solution to involving a technical security (Provider) issue and the 4th was a Security Issue in which we needed to get our own internet router in a secured location.  We now have this issue resolved and during this fix we purchased our own printer as the office computer was no longer accessible with this option.
