Background to the Study
In the world of the twenty-first century, economic and political barriers are being lowered and technological advancements in communications and commerce are on the increase, affirming that ours is indeed a globalised world. The globalization phenomenon is increasingly producing immense opportunities for students, researchers, tourists, and business people, and at the same time fuelling economic growth and development. However, among those taking advantage of opening up societies and borders are criminals who engage in the human trafficking and drug trade, arms smuggling, fraud, counterfeiting, and other financial crimes, and increasingly in computer crimes. This presents a grave predicament so much that today, it is estimated that international crime is a $1 trillion business. 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. The way in which the police go about investigating crimes has been revolutionized by the improving technology that has become available to the police. The police use ICT to aid in monitoring road traffic, where officers can watch traffic images live and direct them on the ground to incidents by use of CCTV. This study tends to evaluate the relevance of computer in fighting crime.
