Christopher G. Moore Updates: 4 July 2014

Dear Reader,

The world of online communities has opened a new resource to solving crimes, especially the ‘cold case’. On every police departments books are ‘cold cases’ and progress in finding the offender has come to a halt.

This week I have a look at online Sleuths. A growing number of communities worldwide that look for evidence to crack the cold case and to provide the police with leads.

There is a long tradition of vigilantes, bounty-hunters, and private eyes who cast a shadow in the law enforcement terrain. How do the new digital sleuths fit into this traditional framework? Are they welcomed by the police and others in the law enforcement community?

Last week I looked at the current state of data collection and use technology by law enforcement officials to predict future wrong doing. This week, I examine whether these online communities are contributing a useful service that assistance law enforcement officers in solving crimes.

The essay this week is entitled The Online Sleuths and the Cold Case.

Enjoy the essay and I’d encourage you to send along your opinion.

Warm regards,

But in Bangkok appearances have a habit of deceiving. Sometimes jumpers are given a leg up in their leap to the next life. Fingering the helper can be a risky business, and for Calvino this promises to be one of those times. More>>
