Regulating Big Data
What are the privacy and protection implications to public safety and security?

The collection, processing and analysis of data is increasingly transitioning from governments to private organizations. These organizations focus on developing strategies for revenue generation through the use and ownership of the data. Industry is self-regulating and defining the rules regarding information sharing and access. This has driven many regions to consider forms of regulation through improved controls. The endeavour has been challenged by big data corporations and elements of the community as attacks on the fundamental rights of the privacy of the individual. So how should governments and law enforcement work with big data, ensuring privacy and protection of individuals, and at the same time allowing for timely sharing of information that will prevent or disrupt events that affects public safety and security?

How to stop drone intrusion in three easy steps?

Drone activity has increased exponentially as drones became more easily accessible and affordable. Events in Gatwick have highlighted the potential disruptive nature of drones, jeopardizing public safety and airway security. With more drones operating every day, there have been some creative and sometimes dangerous attempts to disable drones. This co-creation lab will look at the options of prevention and disruption of drone intrusions to ensure that the public safety and security is maintained.

How do police build collaborative partnerships to achieve better preventative outcomes for public safety?

Public private partnerships: how can they be developed and nurtured into the future in pursuit of mutually beneficial public safety and security outcomes, in an environment of trust and transparency? What currently works well and what needs to change to allow for partnerships to be engrained into all agencies that work together? What partnerships need to be developed for the future as we drive to preserve public safety and security?

Protecting Children
On line safety and security of our children – How can we prevent and disrupt crimes against children in the virtual world?

Children are particularly vulnerable to the exploitation of online predators because they rely heavily on networking websites for social interaction. The openness of the internet coupled with the digital divide between children and caregivers can leave children exposed to online harm. What tools, services and applications are currently available that can aid law enforcement in identifying children at risk, preventing and disrupting crimes against children and ensure that children are safe from exploitation and abuse?

Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Can AI provide savings and improve outcomes in public safety and security?

AI based applications (smart applications) have demonstrated benefit in the rapid assessment of large quantities of data. From a policing perspective there are savings in the number of people it takes to evaluate and assess the relevance of information using these enhanced systems. It poses the question, can a computer replace the intuitive mind of a police investigator effectively to improve public safety and security outcomes? What capabilities exist and do we have the confidence to trust that they will not get this wrong? Examples of the use of AI in law enforcement are emerging rapidly in the use and analysis of large data sets to quickly identify relevant and timely avenues of inquiry. But what is the future of AI application, and could our current activities grow into something more extensive?

The Connected Car
Threats and opportunities of unmanned, semi-autonomous and autonomous systems – What are the implications for modern society?

Arguably the most significant benefit to automated vehicles is the potential for safer transportation. When machines can eliminate human error, the ability to control the flow of traffic is greatly increased.
With growing private investment in this market we have to consider the extent of information that is captured, where is it stored and who has access to this information? What are the vulnerabilities in the system that can be exploited by criminals? Who is to take responsibility for accidents caused by self-driving technology?

ISIL/Daesh 2.0
Further development and the sharing of identifiers including biometrics – Are we jointly prepared for returning foreign terrorist fighters (FTF)?

Biometric identifiers allow police across the world to improve the global detection of travelling FTF and other individuals linked to terrorism. The unique identifiable attributes provided by biometrics facilitate the match of available terrorist profiles to potential suspects in the field in a timely and effective manner. How can the currently implemented sharing strategies be improved to prepare us for ISIL 2.0?

Data Fusion
Integration of organizational data with private and public data sources, social media and open source information – What can be achieved?

Policing has undergone profound changes in the recent years, and the evolution of public-private partnerships is among the most significant of these changes. What can be achieved with current capabilities to link data sets across our communities? With the ultimate aim of providing the right information to the right person in time to make a well informed decision, is investigative analytics achievable in our current environment? How is this executed while ensuring that the privacy of individuals is maintained?

Future Capabilities and Cultures
How do police build future capabilities and cultures within their organizations?

Although the principles of policing remain a constant, the world in which the police operate is undergoing dramatic shifts. Adaptive and agile, law enforcement is introducing positive cultures and inclusive leadership, but also increasingly perceiving innovation as a value, and absorbing variety of new technological options. So how can contemporary organisation take advantage of these paradigm shifts and position themselves to change their practices and processes effectively in an evolving environment?

How can we use blockchain technology to better detect and track counterfeits?

From handbags to electronics to pharmaceuticals and even identification documents the counterfeit industry worldwide is estimated to be a 1.2 trillion dollar business and it is set to grow even further. The estimated death toll from fake pharmaceuticals and food and beverages is now believed to be one million people worldwide. Blockchain is an innovative technology that will allow industry and law enforcement to work together to enforce Supply Chain security by tracking every movement of products from manufacture, transport and finally into the hands of consumers. Several large companies have started to develop Blockchain technology with the goal to integrate it with border authorities. The introduction of this technology will increase the protection of the supply chain from the infiltration of counterfeit goods. The focus of this co-creation lab is to look at where we are now and how blockchain or some other technology may be used to ensure public safety and security from counterfeit products.

3D/4D Printing
Do we realize the impact of the safety and security landscape?

3D printing is slowly but surely creeping into the mainstream and with its endless potential, it got people excited. Today, 4D printing is emerging as a further extension of additive manufacturing that has real commercial applications. Will the ability to print anything in our home be the end of manufacturing and supply chain activities? How will our community monitor and mitigate the risks associated with the printing of weapons and materials that could breach copyright? What impact may this have with respect to public safety and security?

Training Delivery for the Future
How can mobile applications improve the access and quality of training now and in the future?

Mobile phone applications are integral part of everyday life, including multitude of learning apps available at the click of a button. The implications for international law enforcement education are clear: easier access to training material, wider audience and better prepared officers. However, differences in technological capabilities at the international level present challenges to an effective implementation of a global law enforcement education app. What solutions are there that can facilitate training for international law enforcement?

Border Security
What are the future of controls that improve the reliability of the control of an individual, the safety of travel between countries and eliminates the threats of domestic attacks?

Secure and optimized border management is a complex operational process, requiring border agencies having a complete picture of their border operations in real-time. The advancement of technology and capabilities created remarkable opportunities for the fusion and integration of information with international airlines and shipping companies at borders. What is the future of border agencies? How do we improve control measures in smart countries?

How can police prove that what people see actually did happen to ensure the integrity of a judicial process?

Deepfakes are claimed to be the newest way false information is spread, and has been receiving some media coverage around election manipulation and the use of innocent persons being portrayed in revenge porn. But they also pose significant threat to integrity of collected evidence such as cctv and body camera feeds. It has been claimed that seeing is believing but what happens when you can not only add or delete images but also manipulate them to portray an event that did not occur? Are currently used digital signatures enough for police who have to produce acceptable evidence in court? How can we identify or authenticate video and audio recordings to ensure that they are not deepfakes?

Community Participation
How can we improve community participation in creating a safe and secure environment in jointly tackling complex challenges of the future?

How can the community be better engaged in the public safety and security roles and functions? We have seen the rolling out of applications that facilitate the reporting and the mechanisms to share video, geolocation data, and personal information of an event, alerting emergency services depending on the incident. Vandalism, cyber bullying, attempted burglary or theft: many applications enable citizens to create their own criminal investigation file and submit it to the law enforcement. What are the other ways technology is aiding community participation? What will be the next generation of community-oriented solutions and what challenges lie ahead?

5G Network
What are the opportunities and the challenges of the 5G mobile network?

With higher data rates, reduced latency and increased device connectivity 5G will effectively remove speed, responsiveness, and capacity as constraints on wireless innovation. The connectivity is enabling the new generations of IoT in autonomous vehicles, smart homes and cities but as the countries prepare for 5G, what many still do not understand is how it all works and what opportunities it will bring. So how can law enforcement, security and emergency services capitalize of the 5G network to ensure public safety and security of their communities?

Financial Crime
Tackling organized crime; is all about the money – How can we improve the outcomes through sharing data from banks and financial institutions?

Financial institutions globally hold extensive information surrounding fraud and the movement of suspicious financial transactions. When it comes to identifying and investigating transnational crime syndicates, financial intelligence has extensive utility to law enforcement and security agencies, the same way as information held by policing agencies are invaluable to the banking sector. With the emergence of cryptocurrency and cyber related organised crime, it is about time to revisit perceptions of anti-money laundering and the joint responsibility of disrupting and mitigating the risk of transnational and organised crime.

Partnership with Big Data
How should this be structured and developed for the future?

Timely access to information enable law enforcement to make informed decisions and act to prevent, disrupt or respond to a crime. But it is becoming more and more challenging, with the potential to become more of an issue as more organizations join the virtual information eco system. This lab will discuss accountabilities or data ownership and the issue of prompt sharing of information for the greater good, and seek solutions to build stronger, trusting and enduring partnerships that will mitigate the risk of not knowing what others do, that can save our citizens lives.

Marine Crime
Technologies to detect marine pollution crime – What can be done?

With 8 million items of marine litter entering the oceans every day, marine pollution crime poses significant threats to human, environmental and economic security, negatively impacting sustainable development. The recent INTERPOL global operation codenamed 30 Days at Sea, with 58 participating countries and over 800 marine pollution violations reported worldwide, highlighted the key role played by technologies in detecting offshore marine pollution offences. Such technologies include drones, AIS and satellite imagery, side looking airborne radar (SLAR), electro-optical infrared cameras (EO/IR), infrared/ultraviolet line scanner (IR/UV), night vision cameras, sulphur sensors, vessels tracking software and applications. This operation allowed INTERPOL to identify not only countries with significant expertise in the application of these technologies to marine pollution enforcement, but also the high demand of these technologies and the related “know how” from several developing countries. INTERPOL World provides a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between the offer and the demand, linking the law enforcement community and the private and scientific sectors.

Virtual and Augmented Reality
What are the applications in policing and are there any potential for its abuse?

The use of virtual and augmented reality is no longer a science fiction or a tool for gamers. The industry is actively applying VR to solve real world problems and challenges, and policing is one of the sectors benefiting from it through capability development to crime scene analysis. What exactly is available to law enforcement, security and the emergency service and how could it be used in the public safety and security environments to fully realize VR’s potential?

Smart Cities
Is law enforcement a thing of the past? What is the future of law enforcement with the emergence of smart and safe city technology?

Smart technology can make cities safer and ultimately more livable. Smart Cities offer a wide range of possibilities how city services – including policing – could be delivered. On the other hand new technologies pose critical risk to security, creating new vulnerabilities that often remain underestimated. What is going to happen to law enforcement of the future, when the combined data, connectivity of devices will provide potential for “no human needed” approach? What functions of law enforcement will become obsolete and which ones will be enhanced in a smart city?

How will darknet of future be like?

The darknet, often referred to as the dark web, is the place where people offer unscrupulous solutions, where neither the perpetrator nor the implementer of the service will wish to be identified, but also a place where entities store and sell resources containing nothing even remotely sinister. What is the future of this censorship-free world – will it become more digitally opaque or far more mainstream? And is law enforcement equipped to deal with its evolution?

DNA & Biotechnology
Biotechnology, gene editing and the advancement in DNA technology – What are the applications in policing and is there any potential for abuse?

As we overlay more and more data on genetic information, we move from evidence to intelligence and DNA can be highly persuasive. How do we manage genetic predictions in a law enforcement intelligence framework? How do we manage expectations of police, lawyers and the courts as this moves into operational use, and avoid wasting investigative resources on false leads? How can we train and engage with external expert genealogists and geneticists, and what can we learn from their experience with adoptions or paternity cases? Will this technology ultimately lead the world’s policing agencies towards predicting the ‘criminal gene’?

Predictive Capabilities

Geolocation of Individuals
Finding, tracking and monitoring individuals that present a risk to our communities in the real and virtual worlds, and can these systems be integrated?

Digital surveillance: geolocation of users from a multitude of devices and applications became our every -day reality. As with any technology, geolocation has a double-edged nature: it can aid and transform law enforcement but also put us in danger by revealing private information. To what extent can scientists and companies who collect such information anticipate future uses and make them clear to participants and customers? How can safety and security sector benefit from new geolocation tools without infringing privacy rules and regulations?

Cyber Disruptors & Drivers of Change
What perspectives are there for 2030?

Cyberspace presents challenges that all governments and organizations must plan for. How can we work together to identify the indicators of a possible disruption and counter future attacks? How will the advances and convergence of emerging technologies shape a new era for law enforcement, where human and machine are tightly coupled together for various activities? How should our cyber framework and workforce competencies change to deal with these challenges?

Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things or internet of threat: What do smart devices provide and will it be an opportunity or a threat?

In our homes, business and communities, IoT is becoming commonplace within a society eagerly adopting the next generation of connected devices. Is IoT development opening up new vulnerabilities in the virtual ecosystem due to a lack of cyber security controls in the design of these products? What needs to be done to ensure that public awareness of the risks is well understood?

Horizon Scanning
Safety and security organizations – What will the future bring us?

What lies ahead for public safety and security industry? Let’s talk about the future and highlight the possibilities.

Privacy of the future – Will there be any?

In a world of advancing technology, a culture of privacy by design needs to be considered. How can the standards that we collectively desire be incorporated into future policing capabilities? What values are we willing to give up for public safety and security? Will we continue to have rights over the use of our personal information? How will our rights to privacy be challenged in the future?

Brain/Computer Interfaces
What are the applications for public safety and security organizations?

We are seeing more integration and technology within health field to support people with a disability. Will we ever integrate a human into the world wide web, so that we can think of a search and it will be undertaken. What are the issues of people becoming part of the virtual ecosystem?

Architectural Processes and Internal Innovation for Policing
What are the architectural roles and processes required to enable agile responses and how to quantify the benefits deliver by INTERPOL’s policing capabilities?
