We live in a globalised and technologically-advancing digitally networked society. The rapid advancement of technologies is changing the types of crimes to be investigated, the ways in which evidence is collected and disclosed and also the ways of working in the criminal justice service. Further, given that online crimes lack physical and geographical borders, this is a challenge to the rule of law, limitations on jurisdictional application of the law and how as law enforcers we manage our obligations under the new data protection directive for the police, balancing rights and freedoms of the public whilst protecting them, the use of algorithms and artificial intelligence and its ethical impact on decision-making in law enforcement.
