  1. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-58537599 The Metropolitan Police commissioner has accused tech giants of making it harder to identify and stop terrorists. The tech giants' focus on end-to-end encryption was making it "impossible in some cases" for the police to do their jobs, Dame Cressida Dick wrote in the Telegraph on Saturday. What do people think? I've never been her biggest fan and I really dislike her assumption that law enforcement should automatically have the capability to access whatever they want, although I understand why any police officer might like to have that capability.

    DSTL: MoD Police test jet pack

    YouTube link Looks like an April Fool, but DSTL/MDP seem to be testing this thing for VCPs! Reminds me of Thunderball.
  3. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/06/07/british-police-arrest-suspect-spotted-facial-recognition-technology/ Saw this mentioned this morning, quite interesting to read. I know it was discussed recently about trying to use facial technology with body cam but seems it is being trialled with smart cameras. If used correctly it could be quite valuable especially when mentioned about football crowds and tracking persons after disorder etc.

    Night vision

    I'm looking at sourcing some form of night vision technology for a response field. Searching for missing people etc Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or recommendations. Obviously it's highly budget dependant and you have come up with a few ideas but I thought I would check with others.

    So my force issues us with a natty Samsung gadget that has virtually replaced all paperwork that needs to be taken out of the nick. This includes the PNB. Our ePNB has the ability to use hotkeys to insert predefined text so people are using it for the DASH questions, contemp interviews, arrest notes, etc. So, PolCommers, what else could we use the hotkeys for?
  6. iPhones 'disabled' if Apple detects third-party repairs Image copyrightAFP Image captionRepaired iPhone 6 handsets have been disabled after an iOS update, some users have claimed The latest software update for iPhone 6 handsets is allegedly rendering the devices useless if it detects repairs not carried out by Apple. The problem is known as "error 53" and has appeared in Apple products before. The Guardian reports that users' phones were disabled after the Touch ID home button was repaired by a non-Apple engineer. The issue appears to arise once devices have been updated to the latest operating system, iOS 9. In its report, the Guardian cites the experiences of a freelance photographer, Antonio Olmos, who says the problem occurred on his phone after he upgraded its software. "When Olmos, who says he has spent thousands of pounds on Apple products over the years, took it to an Apple store in London, staff told him there was nothing they could do, and that his phone was now junk," the paper notes. Photos 'irretrievable' Many iPhone 6 customers have been discussing error 53 online. At Apple's discussion forums, one user named wallihall wrote: "With this update I'm unable to use the phone, and still have to pay for the phone itself. "I did get the front screen replaced, and I understand that it's now considered "tampered with", but at least let me use my iPhone on the old IOS system... I can't retrieve old photos or important documents I once had." Apple told the paper that iPhone software checks whether any repairs were authorised by Apple. A spokeswoman said: "When an iPhone is serviced by an unauthorised repair provider, faulty screens or other invalid components that affect the touch ID sensor could cause the check to fail if the pairing cannot be validated. "With a subsequent update or restore, additional security checks result in an 'error 53' being displayed." Apple has advised users facing the problem to contact Apple support. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35502030

    New PC Problems

    Okay so today I just built a computer, but its being a problem child. anyone got any ideas?

Installation of EVGA programs and drivers arent working properly. FireFox crashes instantly
  8. Due to the poor state of our current mains rechargeable lanterns I am looking to put a business case together for our GP's to be equipped with a powerful lantern/searchlight which can be mounted in the boot and left on charge for when it's needed. This should also alleviate the need for officers calling up for 'dragon lamps' to be taken to the scene and put an end to stumbling around on the Downs with a tiny battery powered torch. I have heard rumours that Surrey used to have something similar in their RPU vehicles, does anyone on here have any experience of something suitable either in your own force or your current workplace. Suggestions are welcome.

    Hi all, I work for West Yorkshire Police currently as a SC, however I don't get issued with a BB (some SC's do get issued them (of the same rank as me) but i don't) I was just wondering if you can use your own BB and get force email set up on that because i'm only at my station to check emails twice a month or so! If not can you request one? I don't want access to anything more than me email, but i have no idea if you can get this set up on your own BB or whatever. Thanks in advance, Hannah x
  10. Did anyone else watch Charlie Brooker's mini-series Black Mirror? There are three drama-comedy episodes, each of which deals with certain aspects of modern society and its relationship with technology. They deal with the subject matter quite cynically - as you might expect from Brooker - but there is a good balance between the drama and comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed the series anyway and thought I'd bring to the attention of folks who may have missed it (as I did, praise be to 4od!). In order of best to worst (in my opinion), episode number... 3. 'The Entire History of You' - "In the near future, everyone has access to a memory implant that records everything they do, see and hear - a sort of Sky Plus for the brain. You need never forget a face again... but is that always a good thing?" (Written by 'Peep Show' writer, so some excellent dialogue). 2. '15 Million Merits' - "a satire on entertainment shows and our insatiable thirst for distraction set in a sarcastic version of a future reality. In this world, everyone is confined to a life of strange physical drudgery. The only way to escape this life is to enter the 'Hot Shot' talent show and pray you can impress the judges. 1. 'The National Anthem' - "The first episode is a political thriller in which fictional Prime Minister Michael Callow faces a huge and shocking dilemma when Princess Susannah, a much-loved member of the Royal Family, is kidnapped." http://www.channel4.com/programmes/black-mirror/4od

    Don't poke me, I'm driving!

    I've just come across these PDF's produced by IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) showing the effects of mobile phone, and particularly smart phone, usage whilst driving. There are some interesting comparisons to drink/drug driving in the documents, too. The summary is here: http://www.iam.org.u...udy-booklet.pdf The full research is here: http://www.iam.org.u...R592_secure.pdf
