June, 2009. The New York police department spent $99,000 on a typewriter repair contract, which will take on increasing importance since last year NYPD bought thousands of new typewriters, manual and electric, costing the city almost $1 million. The NYPD still is not even close to computerizing some of it's daily use forms, such as property and evidence reports.

My father-in-law used to have a typewriter repair business in New Jersey. Guess he quit too soon.
