Technology is helping to cut crime rates, BBC Radio 4’s ShopTalk programme heard on Tuesday, September 14.

These days car security has improved so much that thieves think twice before breaking into modern motors and satellite systems are being used to track offenders without jailing them. Now we are seeing the emergence of biometrics – which enables people to be identified from parts of their body such as the eye. This technology may be used as part of an identity card system but could also take the place of PIN numbers. But to what extent can technology keep us & our belongings safe? And is their a price to pay? So discussed guests Martin Jacobs, Consultant, Atos Origin; Mike Langley, Box Telematics; Chris Begent, Tactus; Carl Gibbard, Director of Lincoln smoke product company Concept Smoke Screen; Mike Briggs, Thatcham, The Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre; and Richard Garside of London-based think-tank Crime and Society Foundation.
