Since then, significant strides have been made especially in using big data technologies. To prevent errors, Lee (2019) suggests that the information collected should be accurate and that the correct software must be used when dealing with different agencies. The objective of this paper is to exemplify the case of Uncle Bob, who has a record of crime in California, his residential state, and was caught speeding during his vacation in Miami.
First, it is necessary to understand the facts about the case to and access across legal entities. The field police in Florida had basic information that could even though he had no history of crime in that state. The officer arrested him after a conversation, implying that he gave out information that matched the details in their records. Therefore, in addition to Uncle Bobs over-speeding, it was established that he was a fugitive or had stolen property since such is the information stored by the National Crime Information Centre (NCIC) (Kilfeather, 2016). The Florida police knew about Uncle Bobs past offenses by accessing the shared database to verify the information that he had provided during the conversation (apprehension).
