Communications and Fingerprint Technology
Technology and science have been increasingly applied to police work over the past fifty years. During that time, we have seen dramatic changes in the technology available. Discuss the following:
- How have technologies, such as radio communications and fingerprint technology, impacted policing over time?
- What strategic and/or tactical information that is helpful to law enforcement can be obtained from these technologies (radio communications and fingerprint technology)?
- Most technology can be seen to impact the professional policing model in a positive way. How can technology be used to enhance the community-based policing model?
