VANCOUVER — Police want the federal government to revamp 30-year-old Criminal Code provisions and give them greater access to fight hi-tech crime carried out via e-mail, the Internet and other forms of electronic traffic.

The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police has been after Ottawa for Criminal Code amendments for some time and on Monday, the association's president reinforced that call.

The shortcomings of outdated legislation "poses a significant threat to public safety," said Edgar McLeod, who is also chief of the Cape Breton Regional Police Service.

McLeod said police are losing the crime-fighting battle to legislation that was written in 1974 -- when the rotary-dial telephone was still in use.

"Since then the technology has advanced while the police ability to keep up has not kept pace," Edgar said during a break at the association's annual conference.

"We say it's time to stop talking and start acting immediately."

Police organizations want more power -- through lawful access with warrants -- to monitor e-mail, web surfing, instant messaging, mobile telephones and telephone services that use Internet connections.

The police are especially concerned about child pornography, exploitation of children, and organized crime.

The chiefs seem to have growing support from the federal government.

But certainly no support at all from individuals themselves!
