Focuses on the need to exploit modern technology to fight crime, remembering that information is only data until it is shared ‐ and it needs to be shared quickly and globally. Describes the RECOL initiative of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; its objective is to give citizens a single entry point, via the Internet, to lodge a complaint about any fraud and have it directed efficiently to the appropriate agency, wherever that may be, for actioning. Speculates that this could be the model for the future if separate police forces can be made to talk to each other, and refers to the G8 stewardship of the RECOL project; all crime could be reported this way, using digital photography and facial recognition software. Allows that there are privacy concerns, however, especially in regard to recognition software.
