Operating within the Data to Decision Cooperative Research Centre (D2D CRC), the authors are currently involved in the Integrated Law Enforcement program and the Compliance through Design project. These have the goal of developing a federated data platform for law enforcement agencies that will enable the execution of integrated analytics on data accessed from different external and internal sources, thereby providing effective support to an investigator or analyst working to evaluate evidence and manage lines of inquiries in an investigation. Technical solutions should also operate ethically, in compliance with the law and subject to good governance principles. This paper is focused on the Australian spent convictions scheme, which provide use cases to test the platform.
