technology in law enforcement
Law enforcement has been using technology for years. While it can help officers catch criminals, it can also be useful for the people attempting to commit the crime. Traffic cameras, stun guns, computer software that links state convict information together, and TASERs are all technologies that improve officers' ability to 'get the bad guy'. On the contrary, there are various pieces of equipment that can help people trying to do wrong. Some examples are machines that steal credit card numbers and social security numbers, cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying, and computer hacking. Police officers must keep up with the constantly improving world of technology.
