Security has always been something that has been glamorized in the movies, mainly due to the nature of its place in action films. People envision touch screens with complex security commands that can control crime remotely, and up until recently, it was just something that happened in the films. Today, fantasy has become a reality with technology playing a large role in how we protect the people of Tokyo.
There is a sense of success in how far we have come as a society, and as someone that has been part of the process for a number of years, I am amazed in how technology has helped us evolve as a society and how now security measures are exactly as they appear in the films.
The future is now
The enemy of law and order is crime, and since the beginning of time, it has been a game of cat and mouse in terms of staying ahead of criminals. Criminals are just as if not smarter than the people trying to stop them, and they have the advantage of working outside of the law. Luckily, with the advancements in technology, it is possible to even the playing field and stay ahead of crime.
The struggle to fight crime continues, and security continues to be one of the areas that has seen the most benefits from technological innovations and brilliant minds at work. In time, we hope that technology will outrun crime in such a fashion that Tokyo becomes the utopia that I believe it can be.
