London police can now download the contents of your phone in seconds | digitalcuration |

If you’re arrested around London anytime soon, watch out: the Metropolitan Police has distributed kiosks to 16 borough precincts that will allow them to extract data from your mobile device within minutes.


UK-based mobile forensics company Radio Tactics is supplying the system. Called ACESO, the device works much like the units used in retail outlets to transfer data between your old and new mobile phone. ACESO downloads call logs, pictures and video, text messages and social networking data. This speeds up the analysis of mobile devices suspected to be involved in the commission of a crime, which previously had to be sent to a forensics lab.
