The policing of space, in the traditional sense, can no longer be defined by physical boundaries and is unable to be controlled by any single legal jurisdiction or one rule of law. In a time of artificial intelligence (AI) and smart technologies, arguably policing has reached the limits of policing by public consent in the sense that the new police were introduced in 1829 to counter the problems of rising crime which were becoming a threat the existing social and political order [9]. Policing threats such as cybercrime—whilst experiencing several years of simultaneous budgets cuts, the evolution of new technologies, and the changing nature of crime has created challenges for the governance of policing [54]. This is the context in which this chapter will explore the capacity and limits of policing in an age of austerity, to combat the ever-increased risk of becoming a victim of some form of cybercrime whilst practicing within the global context of AI and smart technologies.
