    The NSW police force has equipped its 280 in-court prosecutors with Lexis Red. "It's a significant saving for a government legal department," Inspector Brendan Searson says.

  • Police force equips its prosecutors with iPads

    A new legal research application, Lexis Red, is being used by each prosecutor in an attempt to streamline and improve the efficiency of the Australian state's justice system.

    The NSW Police Force has issued all of its 280 in-court prosecutors with Apple iPads, to facilitate the use of a new legal research app, Lexis Red.
