Abstract

The article is based partially on findings of a completed study assessing the status and impact of computer applications in U.S. law enforcement. Inasmuch as the applications have been most significant in the police, command, control, and communications (PCCC) area, the article focuses on the PCCC technologies of nine-one-one, computer-aided dispatch, automatic vehicle monitoring, mobile digital communications, and management information systems. In particular, the article reviews the nature of these PCCC applications, especially in terms of the police functions they are intended to impact and the objectives they are intended to achieve; assesses the current status and actual impact of these applications; and outlines areas where further considerations are required.
