Understanding how digital tool innovate the development of law enforcement in Indonesia (an analysis study to international law and technology publication)




digital technology, law enforcement, legal apparatus, publication review


Our findings include preventing, responding, and checking for errors; police organizations currently use various digital applications such as surveillance cameras, shot identification frames, programmable tag scanners, facial recognition programs, body cameras, drones, and various information bases. As legal authorization has advanced in mechanics such as robotics, GPS labeling systems, and other advanced technologies, these are just a few examples of how advances in technological innovation in law enforcement provide mutual protection and justice. We found all the findings above after reviewing dozens of articles published in journals; and databases such as Sagepub, Academia, Taylor&France, Google Books, and websites. We design this study qualitatively relies on secondary data to understand how the latest technology has supported law enforcement efforts, especially by the police and other legal servants.
