The Home Office and the police have a duty to protect the public from harm that is becoming increasingly complex through the ever-evolving threat from digitally enabled crime and a need to benefit from intelligence and evidential opportunities gained from new and emerging technologies. As the digital landscape changes, it is critical that policing in England and Wales modernises and transforms to keep pace. If this does not happen then policing risks becoming increasingly irrelevant in the modern age and will fail in its fundamental principle to protect life and property, leading to greater harm to the public and the erosion of public confidence in policing.
To help counter this we are holding a meeting at TechUK’s office in London at 09:30am on the 24th of May to gain an insight and understanding of industry’s experience with digitally upskilling large workforces, maintaining current and consistent business knowledge away from the classroom and the use of data analytics within different markets.
Both the National Police Chief’s Council’s Digital Intelligence & Investigation Programme and the College of Policing will be in attendance to facilitate a workshop-based event to harness the experience of industry for the benefit of policing and the public. We would like as many of our members, especially suppliers that have supported digital upskilling, provided or employed innovative learning methods to industry and have experience in providing or using analytics to gain data driven insights for industry, to join us at this meeting.
Please join us from 9:30am on the 24th May to contribute to this exciting future for Policing.
Agenda will be provided closer to the date.
