Dear P1 Member,

Ten years ago, the term "social networking" meant a pre-shift coffee klatch or after-shift happy hour. Back then, only a small percentage of squad cars had mobile computers — today they're commonplace. As we near the end of the decade, PoliceOne wants to know the biggest technology changes you've observed from Y2K until now.

Send us your thoughts and we'll include them in the December edition of Technology eNews.
