Join techUK and sponsors on 30 October at the Annual Justice & Emergency Services Reception
We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s techUK Justice & Emergency Services Annual Reception will be Commissioner Cressida Dick CBE QPM of the Metropolitan Police Service. Before taking up her current role in April 2017, she worked in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office for two years, and prior to that was an Assistant Commissioner in the MPS. She was awarded a QPM in 2010, and appointed a CBE in 2015. This event is free to attend for techUK members.
This reception is an informal occasion, bringing together industry and public servants interested in the digital transformation of public safety and justice. It is an opportunity to meet fellow members of the supplier community, to hear from senior police figures about the future of digitised justice and emergency services, and to network with colleagues and public sector stakeholders.
Last year’s reception brought together almost 200 people from industry and the public sector, with speeches from Chief Constable Sara Thornton CBE QPM, Chair of the NPCC, and Angus McCallum, Director of Digital Policing at the Metropolitan Police Service. Representatives from across the criminal justice system spent a highly enjoyable evening mingling with the leading lights of the technology supplier community. So be sure to put the date in your diary!
