Butte County has entered the digital age when it comes to fighting crime. For the first time last week, local authorities used an electronic signature to secure a search warrant in an Oroville stabbing incident. District Attorney Mike Ramsey says the process sometimes saves police hours on a case. He says the Legislature had to pass a special law to get this process going. He says Butte County is the first county in the state to use this new encrypted format for a faster process.
