"I was fortunate to be invited to attend the reform.co.uk event on the Future of Police Technology in London today (Thursday). It was an excellent event attracting top class speakers and attendees from Goverment, policing, prospective PCCs and industry. I attend quite a lot of events, but rarely have I taken so many notes."

Maria Osornio's comment, September 4, 2012 6:38 PM
This mobile ID kit to scan fingerprints of an individual sounds like a great idea. It will definitely cut hours of police work and allow these officers to do their job in the streets. If the suspect is not the person in question, they can go home without the burden of being in the police station for hours. I assume it is embarrassing for an innocent person to be questioned by police and thought of a suspect of a crime. My only concern with this new device is that how long has it been tested? Have their been any suspects that should have been apprehended, but were released due to a malfunction or vise versa? Again, this sounds like a great idea and if the technology is so advanced, then these kits should be offered throughout the United States.
