Abstract: The Swiss population has an ambivalent attitude towards freedom and security. Predictive policing is taking place precisely in this area of tension and raises concerns. Despite this controversial situation and although the Swiss authorities are among the pioneers of predictive policing in the German-speaking world, there seems to be no standard work that would provide a clear picture of the current situation in Switzerland. The actual impact remains unclear and existing information is targeted at law enforcement experts. This research is motivated by the belief that the nature and potential impact of complex technologies must be communicated to a broad lay audience. By presenting possible consequences of new technologies in a narrative style, they may become more tangible. The research presented in this paper aims to examine the influence of a thought-provoking narrative on self-assessed attitudes towards predictive policing in Switzerland and the technologies involved. To this end, a multilinear and interactive scenario which portrays possible future manifestations of predictive policing was developed and tested in a first field experiment. In order to ensure the plausibility of the narrative, first the state-of-the-art and the factors influencing the future of predictive policing had to be collected and analyzed.
