Police Technology

$36.25

Computers have become vital for police work in the twenty-first century. Applications explored in this compelling volume include the capability of searching extensive, internationally synchronized criminal information databases; plotting crime incidents and patterns to anticipate and prevent recurrences; interrogating criminal suspects and persons of interest; and identifying suspects by using such innovations as biometrics. New technology has equipped police forces to conduct more effective audio and visual surveillance. Police organizations employ forensic scientists and specialists such as toxicologists, serologists, botanists, and handwriting examiners to help resolve investigations. Advances in police mobility, communications, and modern weaponry are also described.
