Technology at Work

An expanding reliance upon technology has transformed policing in many ways. New and emergent technologies have increasingly critical roles in the daily work of officers; and largely dictate the probability that a department meets the expectations of citizens. Enhancements in technology, like unfettered police officer access to real-time information from police vehicles, new in-car video systems that integrate with body cameras, "smart weapons", and link/communicate with other on-officer cameras within range, enhanced technology has the potential to revolutionize policing, by increasing transparency and offering better information to officers quickly -which allows them to design their own plans to prevent or investigate crimes in their beats.  Below we highlight some of the technology in use by the Fort Worth Police Department, made possible from funding sources, such as CCPD.
