The El Monte Police Department will spend $1.8 million on new computer equipment, including mini-computers that will be installed in about 20 police cars. The City Council approved the funding last week, which will come from money seized in drug raids. About 60 computer terminals will be installed at the station and in patrol cars over the next three years. The computers will allow dispatchers and investigators to work more efficiently, police officials said.
