Camera Phones Against Crime!

from the good-for-them dept

Finally! A mainstream press article that doesn’t trash camera phones as being evil tools of perverts and spies. The Associated Press has written up an article talking about ways that camera phones have been able to stop or solve crimes. Many of the stories in the article we’ve covered here before, but, it’s good to see a nice summary that shows how camera phones have good uses (as well as bad). The best quote in the article is from a police officer who points out that: “You have sort of a crime-fighting device on your person at all times.” The article also quotes Alan Reiter and Emily Turrettini who continue to be two of the best sources of information on camera phones.
