You can partly answer your own question by researching detective methods before the era of DNA testing or fingerprinting. 

 

In addition to that, data from surveillance cameras and other sensors will be used in the future even more than they are today to solve crimes.

I know I've been a little testy towards you, but there's two reasons for that.

 

1. If you're going to ask tons of questions in a short period of time it might be better to put them all in one thread instead of making a bunch of separate threads for each question.

 

2. Bumping a thread by adding a post that only has a question mark in it is rather annoying. I don't like it when people don't answer me either, but if I bump a thread I at least try to do it with posts that have some substance to them.

 

My two off-topic cents.

Surveillance, Alibis, Bank records, Phone records, etc. we already do a lot of that. But perhaps we could expand on it by requiring the perpetrator to submit to a brain scan (only once they are arrested to avoid ethical issues) and see if they actually did it. They would likely be authorized to only investigate 48 hours prior to victims reported death. 

 

Reason for that being if they could store everything, then everyone getting arrested for any crime would have all their brain information in posession of the government. Leading to a party that's "tough on crime" to "keep you safe" (like politicians in the US with their for-profit prison systems). But then again we don't even fully know how the brain stores information yet so this could all be BS

What becomes of man when the things that man can create are greater than man itself?

If the citizens of the future are robots, you could just check their memory to see where they have been and what they have done, and then they would need to explain any gaps in their memory, you could make it so you need Govt permission to delete memories, or the government could record everyone's memories as they generate them, and so catch all crime instantly! (who needs freedom?!)

 

Digital people would be waaay easier to police than meat people, unless you had super strong privacy laws, but I can't see any reason we would have those, based on the way things are going at the moment. 

 

If they are still meat people, they would still have DNA and fingerprints?
