The Root is reporting “that cops are unhappy with Google after the tech giant added the traffic and navigation app Waze on Google Maps. Waze has been criticized by law enforcement for allowing app users to report where police are located.
However, Waze is widely used so travelers can share info on car wrecks, traffic jams, lane closures and more, but police are worried that the tool will enable crime like theft and drunk-driving since criminals would know which areas to avoid. Others say this will lead to more transparency between police and communities.”
