We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s techUK Justice & Emergency Services Annual Reception will be Martin Hewitt, Chair of the National Police Chiefs' Council.
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. This is a free to attend event for techUK members.
Last year’s reception brought together over 150 people from industry and the public sector, with a speech from Commissioner Cressida Dick CBE QPM of 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!
