Why Digitalisation of Global Policing ?
The internet has affected everyone around the globe and has changed society. It has also affected the crime.
Criminals are aware of the opportunities that technology opens to them, whilst much of the law enforcement agencies lags behind. The reasons of this includes the rate at which technology is evolving; technical challenges, reducing budgets and the impact it is having on police investments decisions.
It is really important that every police officer has the ability to tackle crime with the sort of digital elements that are now commonplace, be that because the crime needed a computer to take place, or was made easier by technology or even the offender tweeted about it afterwards.
This remains a fundamental challenge for policing, with a need for everyone from call handlers and first responders to investigators & forensic specialists to think digital.
