Submission + - Police rolls out on-the-spot mobile data extractionn system (computerworlduk.com)

Qedward writes: The Metropolitan Police has rolled out a mobile device data extraction system to allow officers to extract data "within minutes" from suspects' phones while they are in custody.

"Ostensibly, the system has been deployed to target phones that are suspected of having actually been used in criminal activity, although data privacy campaigners may focus on potentially wider use."

Sounds a bit like some key-word optimised police work — better make sure you don't haven't any immediately suspicious search terms...
