German federal police to develop their own computer surveillance software

Lucian Constantin | Sept. 5, 2012
The Federal Criminal Police Office of Germany, also known as the BKA, is looking to hire software engineers who can develop remote computer surveillance technologies for use in criminal investigations.

Harley believes the use of such tools is justified if done in a lawful manner. "It's analogous to wiretapping done in accordance with due legal process (e.g. where an appropriate warrant has been issued), and it's perfectly logical to employ people who are familiar - or can be trained to be familiar - with the technology," he said.

A spokeswoman from the BKA Press and Information Office declined to comment about the job posting.
