POLICE ADOPTING TECHNOLOGY – How a wave of startups are bringing law enforcement into the digital age
Like everything else policing is adopting the advent of technology, for good or bad. As defence lawyers we need to challenge and test the veracity of new technology. “Often, it’s enforcement agencies and not the companies themselves that are engendering public distrust. Police may be enthusiastic about adopting new technology, but they’re usually not as forthcoming in disclosing how it’s being used. They’re trying to sell into an aspect of government that is very, very secretive, which isn’t very helpful for the public’s trust in law and order.”
