Abstract:The use of technology is increasing day by day. Computer systems act more and more in an advisory role to give people assistance. Also in the range of police work technologies provide new possibilities. An example is predictive policing, which applies computer software to locate hot spots and identifies people who are prone to commit a crime. As the outcomes of such systems influence the allocation of time and effort, trust in computer systems is an important component to consider. This study is designed to provide insight into the decision making of police officers with regard to available advice. Examinations focused on the effect of the type of advisor and the type of advice on the level of trust and the acceptance of advice. Taken into consideration, in particular, were the differences between human advice and system advice and advice without underlying reasoning and advice with reasoning. Moreover the cognitive style need for cognition was examined, with respect to the relationship between trust and advice taking. Data was collected via a survey questionnaire. Results indicated no significant differences between the human/ system condition and the justification/ no justification condition. No connection of need for cognition with the relationship between trust and advice was found either. Keywords: predictive policing, human-system interaction, advice taking, trust, need for cognition
