Technology is a great tool, but I have seen officers sitting in a parking lot with their head buried in the computer unaware of what is going on around them. In this day, and time with officers being ambushed, you can no longer lower your alertness. It is a dangerous trend as more agencies adopt mobile computer technology. We must train to avoid this problem. Technology is just a tool. We should not be so consumed by it that it becomes dangerous. Stay alert. Just something to think about.

There is a fine line between using technology for good vs. creating a danger.  I fear we are in that danger mode.  Any ideas how to combat the issue?  Would anyone like to push an article out on it?
