Law Enforcement Use of Predictive Policing Approaches: A Workshop

24 Jun. 9:00 AM EDT

EPIC Director for the Project on Surveillance Oversight, Jeramie Scott, will be participating in the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s two-day public workshop exploring law enforcement’s use of person-based and place-based predictive policing technologies. Jeramie will be speaking on the “Context Setting: Community Responses to Predictive Policing” panel on June 24 at 9:30am.

Jeramie will be joined on the panel by Freddy Martinez from Lucy Parsons Labs and Shakeer Rahman from Stop LAPD Spying Coalition.

Workshop Description: The workshop will feature presentations and discussions exploring several key aspects of predictive policing, including how predictive policing strategies are used by law enforcement across federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial actors, how reliable and accurate these methods are in practice, relevant legal considerations and precedents, disparate impact concerns, and related considerations for effective and equitable use.
