PHOENIX – The Scottsdale Police Department used a grant to purchase equipment that can be used to help reconstruct serious crashes.

In August, the department received a grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, which provided the department with the opportunity to purchase a computer, monitor and 3-D printer, according to a press release.

The equipment will help the department’s Vehicular Crimes Reconstruction Unit to reconstruct serious injury and fatal crashes.

With the new technology, Scottsdale will be able to enhance traffic safety and decrease road closure times when serious incidents occur.

Additionally, the information provided by the new software will allow the city to share information with other agencies throughout the state and country.

The equipment will also play a vital role in courtroom testimony, according to the release.
