Body-worn video approved in Police Scotland's 5-year digital strategy

30/08/2023 | UKAuthority

The Scottish Police Authority (SPA) has approved a new five-year digital strategy for Police Scotland. The strategy, which prioritises the adoption of body-worn video, covers five themes, including tackling crime through a cyber and intelligence-led capability, modernising access to services, providing digital tools to officers and staff, partnership working and secure digital collaboration, and utilising digital technology and data to improve the criminal justice system. 

Key projects include:

  • The development of a digital evidence-sharing capability,
  • The implementation of next-generation command and control,
  • An intelligence policing programme,
  • Development of a data science capability and force-wide analytics,
  • A national law enforcement data service.

The business case emphasises that emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and facial recognition will only be considered for operational policing after the appropriate data ethics assessments have taken place.
