As the computer age dawns on wildlife law enforcement divisions across Southeastern United States, it has become all too clear that you will get your data computerized eventually. If you are slow to respond, you will be victim of another agency's idea of what your informational needs are. Green-lined paper will flow with little control and you will drown in a sea of information. The key element to taming the computer is to have control of the source document, the problem, and the report. Large portions of wildlife agency budgets are devoted to this pursuit and law enforcement departmental heads are obligated to use the funds in the most efficient and economical manner. In this computerized age, we can do no less than utilize to the maximum extent possible these machines that are designed to provide useful information.
