Digitally enabled public safety: Harnessing the power of tech to tackle violent crime

 

Our critical public safety and criminal justice services are facing a challenging and changing operating environment and demand for services. 

One such challenge is the rise of violent crime. 

techUK's report, Digitally enabled public safety: Harnessing the power of tech to tackle violent crime, aims to highlight opportunities where the tech sector and public safety ecosystem is working together to improve public safety and criminal justice outcomes to ultimately make the UK a place where people want to live, work, thrive and can feel safe. 

The report explores four areas where tech is already playing an important role in enabling efforts to address the challenge of violent crime:

  1. Enabling improved collaboration and multi-agency working
  2. Intelligent decision making
  3. Crucial time-saving effiencies
  4. Addressing problem scenarios

techUK members provided case studies under the themes to demonstrate the benefit that tech can deliver across a variety of projects areas.

The report provides a recommendation: The Government should engage with the tech sector through supplier engagement forums, pilot programmes and social initiatives to create and drive opportunities that enable the approach to tackling violent crime in the UK.

Thank you to the Justice & Emergency Services members who contributed to the report. techUK is proud of the work our members do to support the delivery of critical citizen safety outcomes in the UK.
