Please see answers to MQ 4943 and 4944/ 2014. Should the MPS choose to use anti-gang predictor technology in the future, this would form part of the overall intelligence gathering approach for preventing crime in London. It would be subject to the controls of the Management of Police Information (MoPI), Protection of Freedoms Act (2012) and the Criminal Justice Act (2003). Any action planned as a result of such technology would be based on the controls outlined above.
