you were a police manager responsible for setting up a new in-car video system,
what technology would you include?
In Car Video system allows the collection of information and resources. These
are used for researching motion picture acquisition technologies. It covers
digital video recorders, radar based systems and vehicle mounted camera
options. They provide law enforcement officers with additional eyes and ears.
The Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology can be included while
setting up a new in car video system. The Automated License Plate Recognition
systems automatically capture an image of a vehicle’s license plate. The image
is transformed to characters and compared to plate number acquired to the
databases of vehicles of interest. Then an alert is given to a police officer
when the vehicle of interest has been observed (De, Ponsaers, Vijver, Bruggeman
& Deelman, 2011).
would you configure the activation scheme?
requires proper planning, implementation, training, deployment, use and
management of the Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology and the
information it provides. The license plate reader should be fully funded
including interrelated information sharing networks. This encourages
configuration and thus appropriate law enforcement information is shared (De,
Ponsaers, Vijver, Bruggeman & Deelman, 2011).
long would you keep the information? Explain your answer.
Orthmann & Cho, 2014, since there are policies developed in order to ensure
quality of data, security of the system and privacy of the information
gathered, information can be kept as long as possible. There must be compliance
with applicable laws and regulations and this ensures that information is kept
make it even more interesting. Presume that you have a limited budget and can
afford a fully integrated system for a few patrol cars or a limited system for
all of your patrol cars. Which would you choose and why?
integrated system for a few patrol cars is the best option. A full integrated
system gives police departments and law enforcement officers access to high
speed communication as compared to a limited system. A full integrated system
provides rich data and the security and control of data network is enabled as
compared to a limited system (Hess, Orthmann & Cho, 2014).
