What is the policy?
An Expert Panel has been set up to add another layer of consideration to Emergent Technologies. Its primary role is to provide advice and oversight from an ethical and policy perspective of Emergent Technologies. While advice will be received and considered in confidence, Police is committed to making the Expert Panel’s advice public wherever possible - acknowledging this may not be possible in every case, for example where disclosure would breach commercial obligations.
