This article analyses the findings of empirical research to identify possible consequences of using Artificial Intelligence (AI) for and by the police in the Netherlands, and ethical dimensions involved. We list the morally salient requirements the police need to adhere to for ensuring the responsible use of AI and, further, analyse the role of such requirements for governance of AI in the law enforcement domain. We list the essential research questions that can, on the one hand, help to flesh out more detailed criteria for the responsible use of AI in the police, and on the other, build a groundwork for the hard-regulation in the law enforcement environment of the Netherlands.
