Where next for policing and technology?

How the police service can use the current appetite for radical change to improve the performance of its mission

Nathalie Lester, Business Development Manager for Policing at Leidos Innovations UK has shared the following white paper with techUK, published by Sir Craig Mackey. The paper suggests practical guidance on 'what to do now and how to do it’, in a world that has been altered beyond recognition this year as a result of the Covid pandemic.

In a year of significant change, techUK are delighted to share the following paper which looks ahead at what technological changes or considerations are needed to support police. The paper explores some of those solutions already implemented, the importance of good governance and collaboration as well as some of those ethical and legal challenges.

Sir Craig Mackey explores how the police service can use the current appetite for radical change to improve the performance of its mission. He highlights the importance of police working in partnership with industries both within the public and private sector to explore data sharing and emerging transformative technologies, particularly artificial intelligence and machine learning.
