The traditional functions of law enforcement, and other emergency services, have not changed. Creating and enforcing conditions for public safety; investigating crimes; conducting rescue operations; responding to natural and man-made disasters; and pursuing and apprehending criminals -- these all remain central law enforcement and public safety themes. What has changed dramatically is the technology available to achieve these traditional ends. Geographical software to provide context to data; real-time video from street cameras and smartphones; sensors for navigation inside buildings; augmented reality for contextual, field-of-view information; lasers for 3D imaging; facial recognition and biometrics for identification; big data analytics for forensics -- all are in various stages of development and adoption. In this radio show, Kishore Jethanandani will discuss these and other technologies, and the effectiveness, safety, and speed of law enforcement and emergency response.
