Eufaula police receive a 'mobile crime unit' to assist with investigations

EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) - Eufaula police have a new tool to keep them prepared for any crime scene.

A new "mobile crime unit" can be taken to murders or traffic accidents and has all the equipment authorities need to conduct an investigation there on the spot.

In the past, officers had to wait for help from surrounding police forces wasting precious time to preserve evidence.

The department says it hasn't used the new mobile unit yet, but officers feel better having it when they do need it.
