In April 2018, the „Citizen Interaction Technologies Yield Community Policing“ (CITYCoP – www.CITYCoP.eu) project, funded by the European Union´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme ended with a final conference in Florence. At the conference, the results of the research and the developed prototype of an app for citizens and law enforcement communication was presented to a bigger audience. Now, the results of this three years project have been published in a book titled:
Changing Communities, Changing Policing (Jeanne Pia Mifsud Bonnici; Joseph Cannataci (Eds.), ISBN: 978-3-7083-1215-6, published by the Neuen Wissenschaftlichen Verlag (NWV) Wien, 2018) http://www.nwv.at/oekonomie/1364_changing_communities_changing_policing/.
This book focuses on four interrelated dimensions of community policing: law enforcement authorities, citizens, technology and fundamental rights. The team from the Institute of Legal Informatics (IRI): Prof. Dr Nikolaus Forgó, Iheanyi Samuel Nwankwo and Kai Wendt wrote a chapter, together with Prof. Dr Jeanne Pia Mifsud Bonnici and Dr Saleh Al-Sharieh: „Securing the Person and Protecting the Data: The Requirement and Implementation of Privacy by Design in Law Enforcement ICT Systems“ (pages 171-191). The chapter discusses the privacy by design requirements relevant to community policing technologies and law enforcement systems, and presents an approach to auditing such systems.
The book is available in the library of the Institute of Legal Informatics.
