If you had the power to stop crime...

05 March 2012, 10:28
If you had unlimited funds and the power to roll out whichever strategies you saw fit, what would you do?

I'll start, hopefully many of you will contribute thoughts and we might come up with something cool and practical.

As per my previous articles, I would role out internet infrastructure like a madman.
Ever farm, shack and palace would have a fast gateway to the world's information.

Then I would roll out cameras everywhere with automated systems like facial recognition, number plate scanning etc. outside every major intersection and farm in the country.

I would violate everyone's privacy a little more by requesting a DNA sample from every person linked to your ID photo and obviously things like number plates, last known address etc.

Cops would be supported by many Gyrocopters kitted with infrared and whatever other visual aid technology presents.

if a camera goes down or a known perp is spotted where they should not be, response is swift and there is more tracking from the air than dangerous car chases.

The cameras would also be very handy for traffic violation. 

I would also tag anyone released from prison (until they have proven themselves fit for society) but installing available tracking tech near their hearts or brains (Make sure you need specific medical staff to remove it).
If the signal goes dead, a manhunt begins. Simple as that.

For government corruption I would roll out biometric and ocular logging systems for every single transaction.
No decision can happen without those logins as a signature and automated systems police every transaction, dodgy things get flagged immediately and followed up immediately.

What would you do?

Join the advance.
