Biomatics could be the future of security

Technology and Crime

In Shop Talk we'll be finding out how cutting edge technology is helping to cut crime rates.

These days car security has improved so much that thieves think twice before breaking into modern motors and satellite systems are being used to track offenders without jailing them.

Now we are seeing the emergence of biometrics - which enables people to be identified from parts of their body such as the eye. This technology may be used as part of an identity card system but could also take the place of PIN numbers.

But to what extent can technology keep us & our belongings safe? And is their a price to pay?
