Hey Daren - to add to the suggestions you've already gotten...

At the time of this article there were several LE focused iPhone and iPad applications including found, including:
Auto VIN Decoder - returns make, model, year etc., for input VIN number
Field Contact - photo and field contact details, saved and/or emailed instantly for distribution to colleagues
California Law - all California Codes - instant search (tip - deactivate the codes that you don't use every day to save RAM)
Scanner 911 - listen to any local public safety channels that are distributed on the Internet.
Call2 Police- finds the local PD phone number based on your GPS location
Dial Zero - gets you to customer service numbers without going through "Press 1 for ..." "now Press 2 for...."
There are a LOT of apps for the iPhone that aren't yet in the iPad that can easily be adapted for use by LE primarily using the integrated camera; Magnifyer, Dragon Naturally Speaking, Geo-tagging, etc. I suspect that the next generation of iPad will overcome a lot of shortfalls just by adding voice and forward/rearward facing cameras.
Good luck on your search
