The Home Office National Policing Capabilities Unit (NPCU) is conducting a scoping exercise with the aid of techUK in order to explore the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) advancements for public safety, particularly concerning AI-enabled criminal activity. Upon completion of the scoping exercise, the Policing Minister expects to engage with industry and academia in the early Autumn. The NPCU is leading the charge on how the government should respond to the threats and opportunities presented by AI for law enforcement, including developing legislation and guidelines for using AI tools, as well as funding for their development and rollout. This work complements similar efforts led by the Policing Chief Scientific Advisor. Industry stakeholders have until 14 September 2023 to submit their responses using this form.
