The response #2
When I think of global crime issues, today my mind goes straight to cyber crime. Caber crime is something that we as a nation are falling victim to much to often. This is not to be limited to local crimes but all throughout big government and even issues of homeland security. Much of my pursuit for career in law enforcement will focus on this area and this is why I address it.
Caber crime is defined as any criminal acts able to be carried out through use of technological advances within the internet.
Some of the more disturbing issues with cybernetic is other countries that we are not allied with, having the power to take data from the source of safety from the American people. Of course this does not categorize cybernetic as only foreign, though foreign can be some of the most illusive and dangerous. There has been a rise of this same form of criminal activity domestically as well. Cybercrime is well understood as a range of illegal activities that share commission through ELECTRONIC information and communications to carry out their illegal tasks within their networks, as explained by Maquire, M., & Okada, D. (2011). The issue is that many criminologists work so hard to define the issue of cybernetic they have forgotten to research how to deter and stop it. This naturally rises the issue of jurisdiction. “Wilson and Corey (2000) conceptualize electronic space by three distinctions: (1) the physical infrastructure, such as servers, switches, routers, and cables; (2) virtual disparities, or the power relations derived from the digital divide between those who have greater access to the Internet and those who do not; (3) the demarcation of interaction of places, such as online communities that have informal regulations for interactions and restrictions for membership.” This only seems to cause more issues of boundary to fix a growing issue. Many criminologists and legal scholars have investigated the fit of law enforcement against cybernetic. This makes it impossible for any, one jurisdiction, to address cybernetic acts due to the nature of where the crime was committed. This is why a collective of governmental officials will be the very best chance at fighting such criminal activity along with new ways to arm the people in their day to day lives.
