Trust is a normal part of the human discipline to be constantly forecasting ahead, it is hidden yet essential force in our lives, and it has a lot to do with Surveillance. Google develop our web search results based on our previous behavior and the National Security Agency monitors our emails, phone calls and locations, then uses that information to identify terrorists. Below is an article of Police Oracle of The tension between the need for surveillance and the public’s desire for privacy is eroding trust.


Traditionally police surveillance has been a specialist activity that was the prevail of small units who used gadgets, technology and tradecraft that was little known to the outside world. But the digital age has opened up the world of remote surveillance whereby it is possible to target individuals and groups on a much broader scale.

It has also opened up a can of worms for law enforcement as the implications of what is technically possible clashes with the legal requirements for accountability and proportionate use of surveillance techniques

How does law enforcement bridge the gap between the old and the new surveillance worlds in terms of both capacity and accountability? Assistant Chief Constable Jon Boutcher, the UK’s national policing lead on technical surveillance, says the challenges of cyber surveillance for law enforcement require a different approach.

Speaking at the Security and Policing event in Farnborough last month, he said: “Historically, we in law enforcement have only trusted and worked with the people we know. But because of the incredible expansion of technology and the internet and how we now communicate, we have got to get some very good agreements and understandings with people we have not worked with before.

“Some of those people will be in foreign jurisdictions and some of those relationships will be with companies where historically these sort of events have been the exception rather than the rule.”

In other words, industry will be coming to meet with the security agencies and law enforcement in new partnerships that haven’t really happened before.
