Samsung is providing 4,000 Galaxy Note 3 devices to West Yorkshire Police to replace the force's traditional paper notebooks and help front line officers reduce admin processes.
The phablets will come with apps that allow officers to record crimes without the need to return to the station.
Andy Battle, assistant chief constable of West Yorkshire Police, said the partnership with Samsung will allow officers to spend more time in the field.
"As a result of this project, there will be an increase in the amount of time they are able to spend on the streets, dealing with crime and public safety," he said.
"The device includes an e-notebook which will enable us to record information and make intelligence submissions via secure mobile police apps."
Battle went on to explain how the devices will allow officers to enter electronic witness statements and complete missing persons forms without having to put pen to paper or leave their beats.
He added that the move could help the force save money as well as time.
"According to a national audit conducted in 2012 which looked at mobile working in policing across the UK, an average of 18 minutes of additional time on the streets was generated," he said.
"From a West Yorkshire perspective, one minute of extra time on the street per officer per day equates to £1m worth of additional policing annually."
Graham Long, vice president of Samsung's UK and Ireland Enterprise Business Team, echoed Battle's statements.
"The Samsung technology being used by West Yorkshire Police will streamline processes, cut admin time and give officers instant access to crucial information wherever they are, helping the force save money and lives," he said.
Samsung appears to be working closely with public sector organisations. The company recently provided 4,000 University of East London students with Galaxy Note 8.0 tablets.
