Mike Barton and his colleagues are coming to techUK to brief members on Durham Constabulary’s digital transformation programme, the vision and strategic direction of the programme, and the opportunities for supplier engagement. Mr Barton will also speak about his role as NPCC Lead for Crime Operations, his mission to ensure British policing is in the vanguard of tackling crime on the internet, and his overall vision for tech in policing.
CC Mike Barton is the Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary, a position he has held since 2012. As Chief Constable he has introduced new ways of tackling organised criminals, using methods that challenge traditional policing and involve local beat officers and PCSOs, and encourage paradigm shifts. Durham is recognised as a leading force in tackling serious and organised crime as well as managing offenders. It was rated as the top Force in the country by HMIC in 2016’s PEEL Effectiveness report.
During his career CC Barton has worked on a variety of National Portfolios including Chair Operational Requirements Board, and lead for the Portfolios of Intelligence and Troubled Families, Police National Database, and HOLMES (Home Office Large Major Enquiry System).
After the briefing there will be a Q&A session, and the event will be followed by a light sandwich lunch and networking.
