This article introduces a very interesting practice being implemented in New York.
Basically, people will be able to transmit photos and videos to 911 and 311 numbers from their cell phones.
How cool is that?
Think of the potential here. Think of all those movies and TV shows where SWAT teams are going to storm a building, but don’t know what is happening inside! Think of where this can go. I think this is a great development in law enforcement and it’ll be interesting to see what happens with it.
One question, will the photo/video be admissible for use in court cases? It’ll be very difficult to defend that you didn’t commit a crime when there’s photos or videos of you doing it.
I think this is a great step forward.
