Rethinking Law and Order: Navigating Citizen Rights in an Age of Uberveillance Increasingly, the personal and work-related smart devices we use are packed with sensors that record the who (identity), where (location), when (time), and how (mode of transport/condition) of all our interactions. Knowing with some level of predictability where a person is and with whom he or she is interacting—a situation called “uberveillance”—has obvious commercial and security value. User convenience and law enforcement application have been major drivers for collecting huge quantities of data on consumers and citizens. But uberveillance has important and sometimes troubling implications for citizen rights and the rule of law. In this New Tools talk, Katina Michael will address issues related to law, regulation, and policy as they pertain to real-time monitoring and tracking of things and people. She will consider colliding stakeholder perspectives in demonstrated case law, examine the race to go beyond intelligence toward evidence, and ask fundamental questions about the rights of citizens. Is the search warrant process broken? Are service providers keeping too much information about their customers? How do citizens maintain their privacy? Social, technological, legal, and ethical principles and processes will be highlighted throughout this case-based talk toward a holistic approach to information management in practice. This New Tools talk will be followed by a workshop on multidisciplinary perspectives on “data.”
To all the brilliant women I met at this wonderful event in Hyderabad, India, I thank you for your encouragement! Charles Sturt University and the SVP NPA Police Academy, thank you for all the effort you put into hosting this event with women from 24 countries. What a privilege to be there.
My favourite program was the "She Team" program, which is about speaking up about violence against women. The program is grass-roots and it works. Women should feel safe wherever they are.
My main point at this conference was that technology is only ever a partial solution to security problems. The other part is the human part...
Katina Michael speaking on national security technologies: benefits and harms at this international conference on women in law enforcement.
"HYDERABAD: The first-ever three-day international conference in India on Women in Law Enforcement would be held here from tomorrow.
Aruna Bahuguna, Director, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), said the primary objective of the conference was to deepen competencies of future women leaders.
The best minds from the academia and policing organisations from the world over have been invited to share their on-going study and research on the many complex dimensions of law enforcement and also enable the practitioners to learn from each other's experiences the many intricacies related to law enforcement in areas such as forensic science, international police cooperation, regional security and addressing concerning women in police, she said.
Professor Tracey Green, Charles Sturt University (CSU), Australia, talked about the greater numbers of women taking leadership roles in the police force coinciding with globalisation."
