Excerpt from Essay:

Although espionage is still an important tool in some criminal investigations, the Constitution outlines clearly the ways and means by which surveillance can be used without compromising an individual citizen's right to privacy. Rules of due process protecting the rights of citizens entail stricter controls on law enforcement, which cannot perform searches and seizures without judicial warrants. August Vollmer is credited with many of the most notable reforms to the methodologies used by police departments in the United States, as well as the structures of those departments ("History of Law Enforcement" n.d.). Politics and law enforcement are still inextricably connected, but not nearly as much so as in the past. Current criminal investigations methodologies depend on a standing force of professional civil servants trained in apprehension and investigation, while there are still neighborhood watch programs involving civilian volunteers. Such systems of community policing work only when the criminal justice system is viewed favorably, thereby legitimizing the role of officers. Finally, technology has a large bearing on the character of criminal investigations, especially since the 20th century. Mapping and CGI, DNA analysis, and other technological advancements make the job of law enforcement more potentially precise.
