The city of Casper has agreed to purchase a new digital ticketing system that will be used by the Casper Police Department.

Casper City Council unanimously approved the $143,379 purchase during its regular session Tuesday evening.

Officials with CPD say the new digiTICKET system will reduce traffic stop time and ticketing errors. They also say it will save the city money by automating the procedure used to process municipal court and police record information.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer says the new system should help take some of the sting out of traffic stops.

“I think it’s a great investment,” Meyer said. “I think it’s annoying enough to be found having to take money out of your pocket, we’re trying to make it as easy as we can past that initial point of annoyment.”

Oklahoma-based Saltus Technologies will be tasked with providing and installing the new digiTICKET equipment.

The city will use $100,000 from its capital projects fund to help pay for the new system.
