Surveillance and the Limits of Law Enforcement

Surveillance and the Limits of Law Enforcement
9th Annual Police conference - Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, Berkshire, UK

Is the loss of liberty the price we pay for freedom?

How much information is being held on UK citizens? What is it being used for? Is trust in public bodies being eroded by the excessive collection and possible mismanagement of data?Now that we have become one of the most monitored societies in the world, are we safer or should the public be mistrustful?

On an issue in which suspicion is rife, this conference – held under the Chatham House rule – will present the hard facts about our increasingly watched society. Informed by national and international experts, we will explore the ethical boundaries of surveillance as a means of enforcing the law.
