Spy Satellites Fighting Crime From Space - Cnn.com

FLORENCE: Police to crack down on impaired driving | CentralJersey.com

Ray Purdy, University College London It will soon be cost effective for police forces to buy their own satellites, predicts Ray Purdy, expert on satellites and the law at University College London. Purdy has been able to monitor criminal activity -- such as large-scale illegal waste disposal -- through satellite surveillance, which would have allowed police to cheaply and easily strengthen existing cases. "I've gone back and looked at crimes after a prosecution and in some cases you can see illegal activity a year before, which could have allowed a greater conviction," he said. "In other cases we found people resumed criminal activity immediately after they were prosecuted." However, whether satellite pictures are legally admissible remains unclear, as it requires expert interpretation, and has been stricken from the record in some previous cases.

According to Amnesty International, satellite images captured by Digital Globe show evidence of North Korean prison camps. Chuck Jones told the Tri-City Herald. "They're actively being pursued by law enforcement. They're obviously a threat to law enforcement as we try to apprehend them, but the public in general should not be concerned." The Tri-City Herald reports that the bodies were found Saturday morning by a farmworker, who first came upon the bodies of a man and woman.
