Technological advancements over the last 25 years have dramatically altered the traditional crime landscape and have forced law enforcement agencies to adapt to the change. Law enforcement officers are now expected to protect their communities from local offenders committing "traditional" crimes, in addition to computer hackers 10,000 miles away.
