Public Attitudes To Police Use of Biometric Data
Our key finds and the original data from Scotcen
In collaboration with ScotCen Social Research, the Scottish Biometrics Commissioner has for the first time examined peoples’ views on biometrics in Scotland. From inception it was apparent there was little existing UK-wide research on the topic to draw upon, so it was important to obtain a better understanding of people’s views in this area. It was also a useful research study for setting a robust baseline measure with the potential to assesses change over time. This research focused on policing and criminal justice will both help build a better and layered understanding of people’s opinions on biometrics and inform our future engagement with stakeholders.
