Technology Being Used to Fight Street and Web Crime
By Stewart Townsend on Apr 29, 2008
So we have had the Manchester police using Facebook as a means to get updates on local crimes and people to contribute updates, a facebook app for the community.
Now Ever wish your laptop could do more than just crash and cause you pain and headaches? How about using it to fight crime? Victims of crimes in Brazil
can now log onto Wikicrimes and pinpoint the exact intersection of the criminal attack.
Created by a Brazilian professor, the site asks contributors to provide details such as whether the perpetrator was armed or whether a third party can confirm the incident.
So next we have this interlinked with the facebook app and we have a Crime mashup.
Oh how technology is evolving and changing.
