Google has been posting a bunch of “Google Ideas” discussions to YouTube this week. One that went live today discusses smartphones and their role in making law enforcement “smarter.”
It’s only seventeen minutes long, so it won’t take too much of your time.
“Commanders are isolated from their officers in the field, and civilian oversight is further removed still,” Google says in the description. “How can the recent spread of smartphones be used to bridge gaps in accountability and ultimately trust?”
Robert Muggah, Research Director at Igarape Institute and Vanessa Coimbra, Pacification Police Units, Military Police of Rio de Janeiro attempt to answer.
More of the talks are available at the Google Ideas YouTube channel.
