North Carolina holds police camera videos from public record

North Carolina holds police camera videos from public record | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it
Recordings from law enforcement body and dashboard cameras will not be considered public records in North Carolina under a law signed Monday by Gov. Pat McCrory.
LEITNet's insight:
Are Police videos public record or not? Three interesting questions that surround BWC and other recording devices. 
If, during your contact with a police officer, you are being recorded:
1) should the police have to inform you of this fact
2) should you be permitted to have access to the portion of the video pertaining to you
3) should your recording be public record, or must they only be accessible through FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) requests?

Columbus Just Won $50 Million to Become the City of the Future

Columbus Just Won $50 Million to Become the City of the Future | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it
The Ohio city wins the Department of Transportation’s $50 million challenge.
LEITNet's insight:
The public safety, security, and law enforcement community absolutely need to keep an eye on this recent development. While city planners and other officials are focused on public conveniences, it will be up to the public safety partnerships to interject Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design strategies to keep the public safe.

If this venture is successful, other cities will want to emulate it...and criminal elements will be actively exploring ways to exploit weaknesses, and security deficiencies. The reality is that behind every 'good idea' always has someone looking for a 'short cut' to personal gain, or in some cases, just an opportunity to create chaos.

Too dangerous to talk? Some cities explore 911 texting

Too dangerous to talk? Some cities explore 911 texting | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it
Amid a cluster of deadly shootings, police departments are exploring technology that would allow dispatchers to receive texts, photos and videos in real time.
LEITNet's insight:
Law enforcement is actively engaged in finding ways to protect the public, while securing needed information. Considering the ubiquitous smartphone in nearly every major event, the possibility of reframing a 2007 Army term "Every Soldier a Sensor" (http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/archive/2007/May/Pages/ArmyWantSensor2650.aspx) into "Every Smartphone a Sensor" is more science fact than science fiction. The challenge is how to make ESS safe for the general public to use? One solution is to incorporate something as simple as 911 texting. The individual providing the information can do so surreptitiously and reduce their victim profile. 

I've long advocated 'bending technology to our will' and 911 texting offers another method for doing so. What other solutions might you suggest to enhance law enforcement's use of technology to protect and serve?

See why drones could be policing skies in London very soon | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it
Scotland Yard has is in talks over a fleet of police drones to chase thieves involved in drive-by snatches in the capital. But strict laws on where UAVs can be used could throw derail efforts.
LEITNet's insight:
How can drones help in the Criminal Justice system? Myth or Fact: Use of drones by police will reduce crime. 
The truth is 'nobody really knows', because the use of this technology is too new to judge. In his article "Why Drones in Police Work Are the Future of Crime Fighting" (https://lineshapespace.com/drones-in-police-work-future-crime-fighting/), Matt Alderton provides some interesting evidence to support the use of drones in police work. There are of course others who would debate his suggestions, but what do the results actually indicate?

Nearly everyone has an opinion on the topic...what's yours?

Casino served drunk gambler 27 drinks in nine hours | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it

Megan Catherine Trudo's comment, April 23, 2017 3:49 PM
I can't believe they served him 27 drinks in 9 hours. It is good that the casino fired the 3 bartenders for the over serving, however it is very evident that the casino will need to develop safe serving training programs for their business to prevent these same mistakes in the future.
Lisa Castro's comment, April 29, 2017 2:47 PM
Wow thats outrageous! These bartenders obviously had no commen sense nor have had anyone die from a DUI incident around them. People that don't have a conscience should not be employed in these positions. I also think they should have fired the manager on duty for not watching the floor and making sure employees were acting correctly. hat could have been a serious accident waiting to happen. I hope the casino learned their lesson.
Jacalyn Victoria Columbia's comment, April 28, 11:36 AM
I am not surprised by this post. Everyone knows the reason behind the "free drinks" at the casino. More over, the Casino owners know the reason behind the "free drinks". If the gambler doesn't have to walk away from the slots to get a drink, the casino can be losing a lot of money, by the seconds he uses to get a drink. Furthermore, if the gambler is slightly intoxicated he most likely will gain confidence in winning and keep spending money. I am surprised that casinos aren't subjected to promoting binge drinking. Especially if drinks are free, how are they keeping track of transactions and the amount of drinks a person was served.

Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, and other cloud storage options provide viable solutions for educators to enhance learner productivity.

Via Evdokia Roka, Javier Sánchez Bolado
LEITNet's insight:
Although Dropbox appears in the title, Box, Google Drive, and other cloud storage options share similar features. The idea here is not so much to promote one solution over another as much as it is to demonstrate to educators "why" and "how" cloud storage solutions can enhance learner productivity (as well as their own). 

There are dozens of features these options provide, and it's simply a matter of practicing with them to gain a better understanding of the possibilities. "You have to 'know what's inside the box', before you can 'think outside the box.'

Consumer drones are coming, and they will change everything | GigaOM Tech News

Consumer drones are coming, and they will change everything | GigaOM Tech News | Law Enforcement Information Technology (LEITN) | Scoop.it

I recently spent a week flying the DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter. It’s a 2.5 pound drone with an attached camera and easy flight controls, and I loved it.

 

But I also had repeat unsettling occurrences while flying the drone. The first was, of course, the crashes. I hit a car. I botched a landing and slammed down on a stranger’s roof. But more unsettling was the accidental footage and pictures I caught of the inside of people’s apartments.

 

The experience taught me that a camera attached to a flying machine could have a bigger impact than we all imagine on the way we live.

 

When they hear the word “drone,” most people think of the bomb-dropping variety. Those aren’t landing in consumer hands anytime soon.

 

Personal drones are smaller, lighter and are most likely carrying a camera. But when an accident occurs and one is dropped from several hundred feet in the air, they can still be dangerous.

 

In late September, a man flew a Phantom over New York City for about three minutes before a collision with a building caused it to crash several feet in front of a pedestrian. It’s beautiful footage, but the pilot repeatedly bounces the aircraft off of buildings, creating a series of dangerous situations.
