Technology and Law Enforcement Why it Matters
Law enforcement technology is changing faster than ever, and these changes are profoundly shaping the way law enforcement agencies operate and how they are budgeted. As such, police departments around the country must keep up-to-date on the latest intelligence-led policing innovations.
In-Car and Body Camera Systems
In-car and body camera systems have had a major impact on police operations. While the limited view of the camera does not always do justice to giving a complete picture of what is happening, these cameras help in the fight on crime while also encouraging officer professionalism. But, perhaps the most important aspect of these camera systems is that they are able to serve as a witness to a crime when the officer is incapacitated and thus unable to defend himself or herself.
Thermal-imaging devices have multiple uses. Not only can they help locate a fugitive or missing person during a search, but they also can detect where the person or persons have recently been. What's more, this technology can also help identify marijuana greenhouses by their heat signature.
Automatic License Plate Recognition
Automatic license plate recognition systems are able to passively process literally thousands of license plates against a database. This means that while an officer is on his or her shift, the system can be checking the tags of every moving or parked car they pass.
