Policing Matters Podcast: How telecommuting will impact the future of law enforcement
Police work is obviously very dependent on being present out in the public, but cops can do a number of tasks remotely
In many lines of employment, the advent of high-speed internet and the cellular phone network has made “the office” obsolete — people can successfully do their work from a coffee shop or from their living room. Police work is obviously much more dependent on being present out in the public, but cops too can do a number of tasks remotely. They can file reports via computer and phone, do forensic analysis, do research and planning for special events, and a host of other duties. In this podcast segment, Jim and Doug discuss the future of telecommuting in law enforcement.
