The Police Chief Update
October Issue
New technology is developed every day—and such a rapid pace can make it difficult for professionals in any field to keep up. Many of these new or improved technologies have applications or implications for law enforcement officers in their day-to-day work. This issue explores some of those emerging technologies and provides valuable information for leaders regarding what tools exist, what challenges accompany new technologies, and how some members of law enforcement are using recently developed or updated technologies.

FEATURES
Modern iris recognition, a concept that was patented in the 1980s, was proposed over a half century ago. Today, iris recognition, the process of identifying people by the pattern of their iris, is quickly becoming an option for local and state law enforcement agencies and correctional institutions.
 
Technological advances are occurring every day and are rapidly becoming a common component of criminal investigations. Included in the string of improved technology is one new source of information—the digital footprint. Law enforcement administrators are “embracing the cloud,” turning to third-party electronically stored data (ESI) as a key element in their investigations.
 
When criminals have access to technology that make it easier for them to commit crimes, officers should have even better technology to prevent it. The FBI’s Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISC) works with mobile identification (ID) to give officers that edge. The RISC database provides identification information at almost lightning speed, raising the technological bar and allowing law enforcers put criminals behind bars.
