Cops outraged about GPS tracking plans in Boston

Boston Police Department bosses want to install GPS monitoring devices in every patrol car, to enable dispatch to more efficiently process 911 calls. But police officers and their union are outraged, saying that the ubiquitous tracking is too invasive of their personal privacy. Tracking the location of officers as they go about their days would reveal incredibly detailed information about their lives, the officers say.

Irony here too,

US local police department pays CryptoLocker ransom

 

A local police department in Swansea, Massachusetts, has paid cybercrooks behind the CryptoLocker ransomware attack to decrypt files locked up by the malware on police computer systems, according to local press reports.

Someone should tell them about backups.

I think in the UK the Police cars are tracked.

 

I only say this as on a Cop program the people in the call center say things such as "He's just around the corner from you" or "He's currently stuck in traffic".

 

They may just be radioing updates but I'm sure the cars are tracked.


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Words and ideas can change the world.
