  1. The CEO of the messaging app Signal claims to have hacked the phone-cracking tools used by police in Britain and around the world to extract information from seized devices. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/apr/22/signal-founder-i-hacked-police-phone-cracking-tool-cellebrite If crims can leave code on a phone that could compromise the tools police use to examine them, what implications could this have for digital forensics, reliability of evidence?
  2. 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.

    I know we had a similar topic of old which had quite a bit of interest so I thought I'd start a new one to talk about the following subjects; - Mobile Technology (iPads) - New MDT - BodyCam

    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

Installation of EVGA programs and drivers arent working properly. FireFox crashes instantly
  8. I've decided to set up this thread as a continuation from the other place. The two biggest changes that have come and will have the highest possibility of being rolled out are Body Worn Cameras (BWC/BWV) and a Mobile device (currently an iPad). There is also an imminent change in our communications systems with the introduction of Command & Control in October 2015. Please post opinon, rumour and anything else fitting here (remember operational information and MetSec whilst doing so)

    It may not have been rolled out across the entire force yet, but ESIBS (Emergency Services Internet Booking System) has been up and running for a month now. Have you used it? What did you think of it? Personally, I think that even at it's most basic level it's a very useful tool - if only for recording your duties and activities, it's nice to be able to see at a glance what you've done over the last month or two. I think it'll come into it's own the more it's used, eventually replacing the outdated and error-prone Ringmaster system (some got messages multiple times, others never got contact
  10. 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

    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
  12. 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

    New website layout

    So what do we think of the new Hants pol website? I think it looks rather nice. Is the inranet site to get a make over (and much needed clear up).

    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
