The City of Fort Myers, Fla., City Council approved vehicle equipment upgrades for the Fort Myers Police Department after a recent audit criticized the agency's lack of resources, reports Wink News.

Last month, a report from a risk management firm concluded that the Fort Myers Police Department was severely understaffed and lacked the necessary support. It noted that officers lacked sufficient vehicle equipment, and officers would have to drive back to the station to file paperwork because the agency did not have in-vehicle computers. Due to these conditions, many officers were seeking employment at other agencies. 

Fort Myers City Council approved $75,000 to purchase 24 laptops, docking stations, and printers for police vehicles. The council also approved the creation of new positions.
