This group is a platform for collaboration, ensuring industry is connected with those across the Home Office, Police Digital Service (PDS), College of Policing and the VAWG Taskforce.


Digital Justice Working Group

A member-led working group exploring opportunities to drive digital transformation across the Criminal Justice System, working closely with partners from the Ministry of Justice, HMPPS, HMCTS and the Crown Prosecution Service. The working group is now closed for nominations. However, if you wish to stay up to date with this work, please get in touch.


Interoperability for Policing Working Group

Lack of interoperability of tech solutions, systems and tools is a recognised challenge in the policing sector, and indeed more widely across the ecosystem. The InterOp-Pol initiative is member-led and aims to change commercial behaviour and mindset with regards to interoperability challenges, by facilitating the development of a charter. The charter is by industry and for industry and outlines a company’s commitment to openness and interoperability.
