04-13-06 Flying Cars: Speeding Toward the Future of Policing The ability police or manage flying cars depends largely on the present, available technology. Yet, the increased use of flying cars by civilians will only make policing even more difficult and costly than what it is now. Many people may assume that policing flying cars is simple, just imitate what was done on "The Jetsons" or any other futuristic film with "flying cars." But we must remember that that cartoons and films are not real; they are just the product of someone's imagination and special effects. Therefore, any proposed plan should remain practical and realistic; however, we must also be as equally creative in how we are to plan, devise, implement, and enforce monitoring strategies that will prevent great tragedies or obstacles. Planning of this magnitude, should be done by the experts in the fields of criminal justice, science, and technology, in order to ensure the safety of its drivers, passengers, and passerbys. The committee should consist of top police officials, aviation experts, NASA experts, legislatures, and others in related fields that can aid in implementing a meticulous and thorough strategy to police flying cars. Examples of some questions the committee should answer include: how can the police control and monitor this new technology; what operational rules and regulations should be put in place, and why; what safety measures will be recommended, and why; and how can this technology not be used destructively (criminally). The police can monitor flying cars, yet only within the realm of the available technology and support of the community, including the scientific community and the government. Without the appropriate support and funding, police jurisdictions will have a great difficulty enforcing any rule or regulation set forth by the committee. Therefore, the committee must determine how funds are to be allotted to all police jurisdictions in order to monitor flying cars. It is logical to assume that since large metropolitan areas and large cities are more likely to have a heavier traffic flow of flying cars than towns and rural areas, larger jurisdictions will be awarded more funds. Still, the committee should be able to divide the funds to include all police departments 2
