AI in Law Enforcement: Navigating the New Frontier

This document discusses the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in federal law enforcement to enhance security and operational efficiency. It highlights several key points:

  1. Innovation in Federal Law Enforcement: Federal agencies are increasingly field-based and require rapid analysis of information at the edge. AI and ML technologies are being adopted to process large data sets quickly, aiding in decision-making with greater accuracy and efficiency.
  2. AI Strategy in the Federal Government: President Biden's Executive Order on AI, issued in 2023, marks a significant step in the federal government's approach to artificial intelligence. The key aspects of this strategy include: safe and secure AI, strengthening AI workforce, equity and civil rights considerations and collaborative approach.
  3. Data-Driven Law Enforcement: Federal agencies like the DOJ and DHS are leading in data-driven policing. This includes using AI for tasks like identifying criminals and tracking smuggler movements.
