Helping to get responders information faster.

The Vilas County Sheriff's department will get an upgrade to their Spillman records system.

This will be used for the Sheriff's department, Eagle River and Lac du Flambeau Police Departments.

Informational Technology Director, Chris Kamps thinks this is not only an advantage for the sheriff's department, but for the community as well.

"It will help the availability of information quicker and a better manner," said Kamps.

"And save tax dollars by helping with the paperless initiative that files the county going towards."
