In developing a semi-automated decision support system using cutting-edge
visual technologies to aid police intelligence analysts (the VALCRI
project) it was recognised that addressing ethical, privacy and legal
issues would need to be considered from the start. From the beginning,
experts in these fields were embedded in the project and externally an
independent ethics board was established and a number of ethical
concerns were identified. Addressing the concerns presented some
challenges both in terms of process and product and are the subject of
this paper. Insights about these problems can contribute to other
research projects beyond the area of crime visualization, for instance
addressing concerns such as logging processes for auditing and evidence
in other sensitive projects.
