I'm willing to be that it relates to their MDTs in their cars. It's an easier term to understand than calling it a 'data terminal' Mike

It's a carry-over from when records checks were performed by teletype machines and operators. It's used to move voice traffic off the dispatch channel to lessen congestion. In practice, it's another ops / tac channel. MDTs use a different system.

As others have said it is a carry-over term from the days of actual Teletypes being used.

Now it is basically access to NCIC/NLETS and DPSCS Data
