This paper summarises the use of analytics and algorithms for policing within England and Wales, and explores different types of bias that can arise during the product lifecycle. The findings are based on in-depth consultation with police forces, civil society organisations, academics and legal experts. The primary purpose of the project is to inform the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation's ongoing review into algorithmic bias in the policing sector. RUSI’s second and final report for this project will be published in early 2020, to include specific recommendations for the final Code of Practice, and incorporating the cumulative feedback received during the consultation process.
