The text discusses some uses of technology that you may want to examine closely in terms of how they apply to the goal of achieving, analyzing and uses of information as it relates to the concept of boundary-less . These methods are designed to gather intelligence in the furtherance of the police mission of keeping a community safe and secure. Technology alone may not be the total solution for information gathering because of the variety of resources from information can be obtained — all of which should be shared. What must not be overlooked are the reasons why information and technology is important to the police mission – not the least of which is resource allocation.

Police officers experience different types and levels of training which is to prepare them for being able to make decisions concerning predictable situations. One such setting is annual updates on changes in the law. The assumption is, however, that they knew the original law prior to the change. The predictable sets of facts if repeated are easy to deal with. The issue then becomes what to do if the factual scenario is not exactly that for which they were trained.
The legal constraints on police deal with what they should not do in a given set of facts. For example, they must know when, and for what reason a person should be taken into custody or arrested for an offense. The constraints are the basis for most police academy legal training. There are certain official behaviors that must be adhered to in moment of stress. Police constraints protect the liberty of citizens which is the most important freedom. Training is that means of ensuring that police know what they can or cannot do. Is there a professional obligation to be conversant all aspects of the law that they are obligated to enforce?

This Unit’s Question

Describe the relationship of probable cause to a citizen’s right to privacy. What would be an example of a violation of privacy and are there sufficient constraints on police power to prevent privacy violations?
