1. Robotic cameras. Police officers can’t be everywhere at once at a crime scene, and some situations are too dangerous to risk sending officers. That’s why robots have been specially designed to deploy into places officers can’t reach safely.
2. Handheld lasers. Law enforcement agencies are now using handheld lasers in crime scene investigations. Sorry, sci-fi fans—they’re probably not the type of lasers you’re picturing.
3. Automatic license plate recognition. Those letters and numbers on our cars help law enforcement officers determine if vehicles are stolen or if the owners are wanted.
4. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) If you thought remote control camera robots were cool, you’ll be excited to hear that some law enforcement agencies have experimented with using unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), sometimes known as drones.
5. Tablets. That’s right—one integral piece of law enforcement technology is one you may have sitting on your desk right now: iPads and other tablets. It may not seem like much, but ever since iPads have been introduced to police departments around the country, officers’ job have become increasingly more versatile.
6. GPS vehicle-pursuit dart. Imagine the classic car-chase scene: Police cruisers careening after one wild driver with helicopters following from above. It’s a dangerous situation, full of dangerous variables.
7. Thermal imaging. It might sound like a tool you’d find in the Batcave, but the thermal imaging technology we use in the medical world has made its way to the crime scene.
8. Gunshot detection systems. Now being implemented in a few U.S. cities, the gunshot detection systems (GDS), or ShotSpotter, is a system that shows police officers where a gunshot has just been fired.

1. A renewed focus on community oriented policing. We predict that the biggest trend we’re going to see in 2020 is a renewed focus on community oriented policing.
2. Public-Private collaborations on public safety initiatives. In order to facilitate community oriented policing strategies, we’re going to see major growth in public-private collaborations to increase public safety.
3. Increased investments into IoT devices. The “Internet of things” (IoT) is essentially greater interconnectivity and data gathering via a network of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, like smart TVs, fridges, cars, and other appliances.
4. The breakdown of silos and advanced technology integrations. Going hand-in-hand with an increased reliance on IoT devices and the use of advanced technologies, we’re hopefully going to witness a rapid defragmentation of technology assets.
5. Police Departments pursuing policies that ensure greater transparency and accountability. Building public trust is the key to successful community oriented policing strategies.
6. Continued focus on enhancing police response to active shooter situations. One of the most high-profile and painful problems facing the US currently is mass shootings.
7. Cities beginning to build out the next generation of 911. To this point we’ve mostly talked about the implementation of new technologies that facilitate more efficient data gathering and sharing, but all those data feeds are useless if they don’t go somewhere.
8. Moving more evidence and data to cloud-based platforms. Finally, with this predicted explosion in digital data for law enforcement, we’re going to see a corresponding shift towards cloud-based platforms for evidence storage and retrieval.
