What type of career can someone with your major pursue
One of the most important technical tools in the field today is the computer database. There are now data base systems for DNA testing and profiling, fingerprint, and "Hot Spot" crime mapping programs. Years ago everything was written down and information was difficult to exchange between different countries and states. Now it's universal assessable thanks to computer basses. Law Enforcement professionals can exchange information more easily and affordable now.
Instead of sending an officer to check out a dangerous situation, it's now possible to send in a robot. There are even flying robotic drones that give officers a bird eye view of a crime scene without a person having to go up in the air.
GPS and GIS systems
Officers use GPS/GIS in many. On great way GPS is used is to track fleeing criminals without having to engage in a dangerous high speed chase. GIS can be used to track police vehicles so departments know where they are located.
Gun Shot Detection System (GDS)
This system of electronic sensors installed in high-crime areas help police quickly detect where any gun shots came from. They allow for an improved response time that helps reduce crimes.
Automatic License Plate Recognition
There are now cameras inside police cars that can automatically run every single license plate the camera sees. An officer immediately sees if the car is stolen or if the driver has warrants out for his arrest.
