Personal Technology and Crime Fighting with GPS

Many believe a crimeless society is in our civilizations near future for many reason. These folks make an excellent point indeed and it makes sense, as technology has been a very great way to stop crime. Personal Tech Devices as seen at the Las Vegas 2006 Consumer Electronic Show seem to be moving towards a realm where they will curb crime. And although this is far from the theme of this years show we have already seen crime is going to be curbed by video cell phones and digital camera phones. Low tech crime fighting also makes a lot of sense such as the Presidents Initiative on Neighborhood Watch Programs or the undercover work from local police departments. Here is a relative simply plan I personally came up with that works well; Presently we see things such as the 3G Cell phone tracking to catch criminals who abduct children as well. And we have capabilities today; right now in the present period of Cell Phone Tracking, where cell towers can triangulate position. This can help GPS a distressed motorist or a car buried in an avalanche. These technology tracking triangulation strategies can also be done thru satellites too, or better yet a combination of satellites and Cell Tower EM signature plumes. As long as the phone has a battery in it or an internal battery to hold “speed dial numbers” etc. then you can be tracked by that. There are new companies with RFID Implants for help keeping kids safe and finding lost dogs. And some who frequent certain “trendy” bars in Europe have been chip implanted so that you can go in as a regular without waiting in line? Sounds nuts, but people do this now, today. Many have suggested tacking Child Molesters this way and know when they are sitting in front of a schoolyard or park so that authorities can prevent abductions. We will see more of these things in the future and be able to help curb crime, although some citizens maybe very upset with the violation of privacy. We shall see more debate on this in 2006. \"Lance Winslow\" - Online Think Tank forum board. If you have innovative thoughts and unique perspectives, come think with Lance; .
