Heading further into the 21st century, digital ethics and trust have become increasingly important issues for police. Communities and agencies are beginning to demand the collection of data and the analysis produced from its collection. Law enforcement agencies are also expected to utilize the data analysis and technology in a secure and ethical manner. The injudicious use of data, analytics, or technology by a police department may have a negative impact on public trust and may increase the difficulty of achieving effective policing in contemporary law enforcement. Leaders within law enforcement agencies will benefit from a deeper understanding of digital trust and its implications to their organizations and profession.
This webinar will explore the importance of building digital trust in law enforcement agencies. Transparent data and digital ethics create digital trust. Digital trust between the police and their stakeholders allows for the use of promising technology while mitigating risks associated with the implementation and use of this technology.
Topics will include:
- The crafting of a digital ethics framework that can be used by police executives and stakeholders to guide discussions on technology;
- Addressing public concerns on transparency of what data is used by law enforcement and how the data is used; and
- An overview of data integrity, security and control, and implementing the use of technology and data governed by a code of ethics.
