Recent technology advancements have significantly affected how police operations are conducted, particularly in the past few decades. Whereas officers a generation or two ago were equipped with technology that was intended to increase their productivity, officer safety, and the efficiency and effectiveness of their agencies, officers today are trained with a technological environment that is meant to increase their productivity, officer safety, as well as the effectiveness and efficiency of their agencies. Examples of How Technology Can Affect and Improve Policing In this example, we can see how communication has progressed over the past several years. The days of making all of our phone calls by locating a payphone and dialing into the police radio system are long gone for most people. Previously, law enforcement authorities did not have to be concerned about listening in on conversations via mobile phones since such gadgets did not exist. Police vehicles are equipped with computer-aided dispatch systems, and CAD/CADIT is incorporated with such cars. A dispatch system uses the tasks listed above to decrease reaction time, collect data more effectively, and reduce radio broadcasts as much as possible. Pre-Crime Technology Roles Pre-crime technology is a kind of technology used to prevent a crime from being committed before it occurs. Preventive measures are essential in the effective fight against corruption, and technology is one of the tools available to aid in this endeavor. While law enforcement is increasingly relying on artificial intelligence and big data predictive analytics to prevent crime from happening, there are a variety of other methods that are also being used. Key Uses of Pre-Crime Technology
- Officers in Chicago are using the technology ShotSpotter
- Which triangulates data to identify the location of gunshots
- To track down and apprehend criminals in the city.
- The data collected will allow law enforcement officials to organize more effective patrols in high-crime areas.
- And conduct more thorough investigations after shootings.
