Allan Fairley, the newly elected Chair of the Committee, said

"I am honoured that members have elected me to be chair of techUK’s Justice and Emergency Services Council at what is a crucial time for the sector. We are at a critical inflexion point with extreme financial pressures likely to continue for the long term, making finding alternative delivery models an absolute necessity.

Digital technology will be a key enabler of this, providing solutions which will help us deliver more for less whilst also providing services that citizens are increasingly demanding as the sector tackles the changing nature of crime. My goal will be to bring together industry, police forces and relevant stakeholders to help solve the problem collectively and deliver the transformation we need. We all want the same thing – to keep the country safe, so collaboration is key to making this happen."
