Police departments and law enforcement agencies today must serve their communities in two overlapping worlds: the physical and the digital. As challenges evolve for police and law enforcement, new public safety technology solutions are helping those professionals serve, protect, and engage communities.
Technology plays dual roles in the changing worlds of policing and crime. Financial fraud, hate speech, and radicalization are increasing in the digital realm, with social media used to plan and discuss crimes, and even to boast about criminal activity. But technology is also a tool for law enforcement, providing police with new insights, techniques, and evidence to better engage, and ultimately protect, the public. Newer technologies—such as increasingly sophisticated body cams and other data-capture devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and deeper analytics—help ensure both officer and public safety and enable law enforcement to serve communities more effectively and empathetically. Police need to adopt a preventative approach over a reactive one to keep the public safe. As crime proliferates, new threats emerge every year. To stay ahead of crime trends, public safety agencies must anticipate and respond to such threats.
