This is a conceptual paper on Communication Interception Technologies (CIT) within the criminal justice system because little substantive research exits, outside of the military/defence and national security domains, on several methodological issues surrounding the use of CIT particularly in a policing context. The paper proposes the adoption of an organising framework based on a Knowledge-Managed Policing (KMP) approach to the use of CIT to effectively address methodological concerns. The paper initially overviews what is characteristically involved in a Knowledge-Managed Policing perspective. It concentrates of three key dimensions that of police practitioners' knowledge as the basis of a KMP system; the technological processes which support a KMP system; and the organisational context of police work from a KMP perspective. Then the conceptual dimensions of CIT are briefly outlined and discussed with reference to adopting a KMP framework. The paper concludes with some speculative comments on the suitability of KMP as a regulatory framework for CIT.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
