DOJ Solicits Public Input on AI Use in Criminal Procedures

The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice is requesting public feedback on the use of artificial intelligence in the criminal justice system.

The feedback will inform a comprehensive report mandated by President Joe Biden’s October 2023 executive order on AI, which emphasizes ensuring fair and impartial justice for all, FedScoop reported.

According to a document posted on the Federal Register, the NIJ is seeking comments on a wide range of AI applications within the criminal justice system, including its potential impact on law enforcement practices, crime prediction, sentencing decisions and parole procedures.

The report, due in one year, will explore how AI can be leveraged to benefit law enforcement while also outlining best practices for its implementation. NIJ will collaborate with the Homeland Security secretary and the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Additionally, the NIJ will recommend further actions to the White House regarding AI’s role in the criminal justice system. The public has 30 days to submit comments.
