Virtual police stations should be opened in the metaverse to tackle online crimes, Interpol suggests.
I suppose this was inevitable... British police farces are probably congratulating themselves on leading the way!
The international police body has called for forces to consider opening online units offering services like 'reporting crimes, filing complaints or hosting virtual community meetings'. In a White Paper warning of an explosion of crimes in virtual reality games, Interpol suggests officers should maintain a 'virtual presence in the metaverse' to prevent sex offences, child abuse and even terrorism.
If it's as effective as the real-world presence, better open up a virtual Police Complaints Authority alongside it.
