Before his term ended, former president Clinton signed into law a funding measure that includes more than $1 billion in funds for Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS). The funding includes $140 million for the COPS Technology Program to be used for the continued development of technologies and automated systems to assist state and local law enforcement agencies.

In passing the legislation, Congress directed the Justice Department to fund a number of grant requests from specific law enforcement agencies to fund mobile data terminals and similar systems for law enforcement vehicles.
