Who has lost out, have any civil liberties been intruded with the filing of personal information How we've become better informed. And better served by the police. Creation of DNA databases. CCTV, less police on the streets Reaction times increase Patterns and computers. Radios. Rather than massive paper systems. The uses of technology within the police forces in England have greatly increased the way in which the police serve and protect the population for the better.

Conclusion

These methods all contribute to making operations easier, faster and helps to lower costs. Also the safety has improved through the use of I.C.T. This is by such improvements of technology such as a system that allows train drivers to communicate with different stations and platforms and also to each other. This is useful for train drivers to report any faults with any of the tube lines. Trains can be informed of any accidents or delays and know whether to slow down speed up etc. This benefits both underground workers and commuters and has been made possible through the advances made in I.C.T. Another of the public sectors that has been impacted for the better by the use and implementation of I.C.T is the Health Sector. Hospitals are now much more able to help treat and cure people. This can be seen through some examples of existing technology that is currently being used. For example ...read more.
