You heard it right folks. Would you like to live in a town whereby you can track your police officers’ movements? If you are a criminal I assume you would be all for it, however some of us are not so sure. The Police Department from Surrey, UK have launched an app that is supposed to instil confidence about knowing where your police officers are.
This sounds all well and good in theory, but there is an obvious downside!
As always happens with advancements in technology, criminals keep an eye on things just as much as us tech hungry geeks do. The Surrey Police must not think criminals knowing the location of Police Officers will have a negative impact on crime! Being a victim of recent riots here in Manchester I dread to think how much worse things could have been if this app was actually available here in early August.
The app is currently being tested in the town of Runnymede in Surrey for now, with the intention of being rolled out country wide.
Good or bad? You decide.
