Justice and Emergency Services

techUK's Justice and Emergency Services Programme provides a forum for justice and public safety stakeholders, from national policing bodies and local forces to fire and rescue and the justice system, opportunities to collaborate with members and stakeholders to understand the latest innovations, problem-solve and develop networks. The programme creates a voice for members active in this market and champions the role technology plays in supporting the delivery of public safety services.


Local public services

Local public services are faced with a range of challenges and digital presents the opportunity to do things differently and smarter. We bring together companies large and small with local authorities to find solutions that improve outcomes for citizens and help create thriving, productive and safer places for all. Local government can be a complex market, that is why we help members to navigate it and champion the innovations that can create truly digital local public services and outcomes.
