(WHAS11) -- Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway unveiled a new tool for law enforcement agencies in 78 counties.

On Wednesday Conway presented two of the new mobile data terminals to Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton and Frankfort police Chief Mark Wilhoite.

The computers will be put in the officers' cars and officers can enter information during a traffic stop or after responding to a scene to find out if a person has an outstanding warrant.

Conway's office was able to buy the terminals as part of a federal grant.

Agencies near the Louisville area that will be getting the terminals include those in Nelson, Carroll, Shelby, Washington, Breckinridge, Marion and Grayson counties.
