GREENFIELD — Need to pay a parking ticket or appeal one? Request a public record or see an accident report? The Greenfield Police have a way to streamline the process.

The Police Department has just installed a computer kiosk in its High Street station lobby that lets the public file necessary request forms, search the sex offender registry, comment on police service, or even sign up for the next police exam.

The kiosk was installed this week, and the old-fashioned paper request forms will be phased out once another kiosk is put in place at the Town Hall, according to Police Chief Robert Haigh.

Haigh said the kiosks will cut down on the paperwork required for police staff, who must now come into work to type up and enter all the data. He said people will be able to type up their own forms, which will automatically come to the chief’s office.

Besides using the kiosks, those with computers and smart phones can file requests by going to www.greenfieldpd.org and clicking on the online services link.
