Artificial Intelligence Procedure Consultation
At its public meeting on February 28, 2022, the Toronto Police Services Board (Board) approved the new Board Policy entitled “Use of Artificial Intelligence Technology.”
This Board Policy establishes governance for the use of new and/or enhanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, and for previously approved AI technology that will be used for novel purposes or circumstances. Additionally, this policy establishes an assessment and accountability framework regarding the acquisition and use of AI technology.
In response to this Board policy, the Service drafted a procedure and associated appendix to provide Service members with a framework for the acquisition and use of AI technology. This draft governance aims to use a measured approach to risk assessment, costs, and benefits related to the Service’s use of AI technology.
The Service would like to thank all members of the public that provided comment on this draft governance during the feedback period of November 24, 2022 – December 23, 2022.
After reaching out to those who commented on the governance to obtain the necessary permission, we are now pleased to publish the feedback here for public information below. In some cases we have removed personal identifiers as requested.
The Service will be considering all of the feedback as work continues in the coming months.
The AI technology procedure and appendix, once finalized and presented to the Board, will be accessible online at www.tps.ca/service-procedures/.
