Abstract / Description

This is the first in a series of papers exploring the implications of the use of new technologies for policing purposes, produced as part of a research project commissioned by the UK Information Commissioner into the question of Privacy and Law Enforcement. It describes a number of key aspects of policing in the period 1994 to 2004 and provides an assessment of likely trends and technology applications to 2009. As a means of providing continuity, these two time periods have been amalgamated into a single paper.

Please note that the paper was released on the Commissioner’s website in September 2004 as 'Striking the Right Balance: Respecting the Privacy of Individuals and Protecting the Public from Crime', but appears to be no longer available there.
