In episode 13 of Covert Contact I speak to security blogger/podcaster, and Blogs of War contributor, Scriven L. King about some of the challenges in modern policing.
Security professionals, police included, are scrambling to understand rapidly evolving technologies and threats. Evolving to meet those threats, and leverage those technologies, without significantly changing what it means to be a police officer, without undermining the ideals of the profession, and without permanently damaging public perception of the profession is proving difficult. Even greater challenges loom on the horizon so the time for serious apolitical dialogue is now.
