The Santa Maria Police Council presented the city's police department with a $68,000 check Thursday night.
The check will be used to purchase a new modern computer system.
The police department has been using a paper system for years now.
Commander of the Santa Maria Police Department Craig Ritz says its going to help officers save more time.
"Its going to allow them to come in enter the evidence, print it out book it and get back on the street where we can help our community," said Commander Craig Ritz.
Ritz also says the department is in the process of moving to a bigger building on West Betteravia.
He says the department now on Cook Street is a little cramped because of the 22 thousand cubic feet packed with evidence.
