    Technology has had a major impact, not only on policing, but also on proposals for improving policing. Ferguson argues many innovations track traditional policing philosophies and replicate their problems. Chavis suggests one of them, predictive policing, will replace community policing with SWAT-style responses to surveillance-generated reports of shots fired. However, Capers thinks that this more limited form of police intervention may turn out to be a good thing. It will limit aggressive stops and frisks.
