We have identified five drivers for change that will affect policing tomorrow
Can be a threat to security, but can also be a tool for police and a source of evidence
We live in a so-called VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous). Technology and innovation change our lives on a daily basis, often for the better.
But today’s security landscape is unpredictable; prone to sudden shock or disruption. From terrorism to cybercrime, unprecedented criminal activities can suddenly appear on the radar screen of law enforcement.
Stealing a car by amplifying the signal from the keyfob would have been unheard of a few years ago.
Relatively new phenomena such as DarkNet markets and Cryptocurrencies fuel not only cybercrime, but enable a multitude of other crimes, often with links to terrorism and organized crime.
In addition, cyber-enabled crimes can cross borders so fluidly that it is hard for national police to investigate them alone. Collaboration and sharing expertise are essential.
