Abstract: 

Modern police operational and administrative methods are almost totally constrained by available communications technology. As electronic communications became available in their early forms during the course of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century many police agencies were slow to appreciate the benefits being offered them. Even once modern methods were accepted, great selectivity was exercised in that acceptance.
