Andrew Guthrie Ferguson (American University Washington College of Law; University of the District of Columbia - David A. Clarke School of Law) has posted Chapter: "Blue Data" (Excerpt from "The Rise of Big Data Policing: Surveillance, Race, and the Future of Law Enforcement") on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This chapter is an excerpt from "The Rise of Big Data Policing: Surveillance, Race, and the Future of Law Enforcement" which focuses on the concept of "Blue Data." The theory of blue data accountability is to turn the lens of surveillance away from the community and towards the police themselves. The chapter offers examples of how existing data-driven policing can enhance police accountability if used to focus on police misconduct and unconstitutional practices.
