While police may be salivating over new TIA-style technologies that let them bring all sorts of databases together to figure out which crimes you’re likely to have committed – it turns out that many police departments are worried that they can’t afford the technology. Even with all the talk of “homeland security”, it’s increasingly difficult for police to raise money for technology improvements. While I’m all for systems that make it easier for police to track down criminals, I do worry about how the technology is (mis)used.
