Can police investigations keep pace with technological developments? The role of technology in policing
Technology-Led Policing (2011)
Technology has always had a prominent role in policing activities. The role of technology in policing not only expanded during the last years, but in the meanwhile it became of a different nature.
Firstly technology is increasingly used to support police work (by means of CCTV, scan equipment, resources for investigation, and so on). Secondly technology provides new opportunities for criminals, especially in the domain of information technology and these demand continuous adjustments from the police in terms of investigative methods. The use of technology in policing also leads to fascinating and challenging questions. On the one hand, there is the privacy issue and the protection of individual rights. But on the other hand technology-led policing also raises questions concerning the consequences of investing in technology, as well concerning the ways in which police forces can accomplish their tasks.
The question whether police investigations can keep pace with technological developments is up for discussion. In this issue of the Journal of Police Studies, both scientist and practitioners provide us insights about these questions and challenges technology-led policing presents us with.
