Google helping Law Enforcement

Google has released Google Streetview for Memphis recently. They are currently photographing the entire county, which will take a while. Even so, I've already added it into our "Kiosk" at the Memphis Police Department. Officers who are working up a warrant will be able to pull the address up and see what the neighborhood looks like, intersecting streets, houses on either side of the target address, etc. This is going to be a great tool for cops!

Here is an example of what I'm talking about. Double click the image and then see how you can turn the picture 360 degrees, or move down the street, etc.:

3600 Tutwiler Ave, Memphis, TN 38122
