Justice and Emergency Services

techUK's Justice and Emergency Services Programme provides a forum for justice and public safety stakeholders, from national policing bodies and local forces to fire and rescue and the justice system, opportunities to collaborate with members and stakeholders to understand the latest innovations, problem-solve and develop networks. The programme creates a voice for members active in this market and champions the role technology plays in supporting the delivery of public safety services.
