Question Description

The course concluded this week with a review of the role of data in crime prevention. Beyond the “Ring of Steel” application, data and technology will continue to transform crime prevention and law enforcement.

  • Should law enforcement agencies be allowed to track parolees or probationers using GPS and GIS? Why or why not?
  • How can mapping and GIS technology be used to best ensure the safety of the community? Keep in mind that any procedures or strategies must be constitutional.
  • How sophisticated has crime mapping become in the U.S.? Is it a benefit to society or an unnecessary danger to allow ordinary residents to have access to mapping data such as crime maps or sex offender locations?
  • Why is there a reluctance of the private sector and utilities to share GIS and other data with police and law enforcement agencies?

Introduction

Crime prevention is an essential aspect to ensure community safety. The law enforcement
agencies utilize the advanced technology to transform crime prevention and law enforcement
(Lum, Koper, and Willis, 2017). This is possible through the utilization of tools such as GPS and
GIS in law enforcement agencies. GPS refers to a technology that allows identification of
geographical location within an area, while GIS provides geographic data of an individual. The
data collection technologies boost law enforcement operations by reducing the time spent on
fieldwork and caseloads. The data tracking techniques can be useful in tracking offenders on
probation and determining their behavior patterns. Also, the techniques can ensure community
safety by linking locations and mappings to provide necessary interventions for crime
prevention. However, crime mapping is beneficial in the US since it allows the involvement of
the public in community policing. GIS and GPS utilization in law enforcement agencies is
essential to transform crime prevention and law enforcement in society.

Law enforcement agencies tracking parolees using GPS and GIS

GPS and GIS play a pivotal role in geocoding and data accuracy. The law enforcement
agencies should be allowed to use the tools to track probationers to analyze and understand
hidden behavior patterns of the offenders that are useful to predict possible future outcomes. In
