The focus of the JES Programme
Working Groups and Committees
The Justice and Emergency Services (JES) Programme has over 300 members who are represented by the JES Management Committee (JESMC). The JESMC is a group of 20 representatives of companies in techUK's membership who work together to oversee the strategic leadership and direction of the programme.Robert Leach, Chair, Director, R Leach Consulting Katie Taffler, Vice-Chair, Criminal Justice Lead, Accenture (Interim Vice-Chair: Daniel Boyd Vice President at Mastek)
The group brings together techUK members, police, policymakers, academics, and technical specialists to problem solve, voice their ideas, experiences and expertise about technology's role in tackling Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and Rape and Serious Sexual Offences (RASSO). This group is a platform for collaboration, ensuring industry is connected with those across the Home Office, Police Digital Service (PDS), College of Policing and the VAWG Taskforce.
This working group will, in-part, serve the RASSO Technology Partnership (RTP) Board, chaired by Chief Constable Sarah Crew, which is charged with a mission to improve capability in RASSO investigations. This working group will help to innovate, challenge and inform the strategic needs and requirements whilst also linking to the wider digital strategy across digital stakeholders.
A member-led working group exploring opportunities to drive digital transformation across the Criminal Justice System, working closely with partners from the Ministry of Justice, HMPPS, HMCTS and the Crown Prosecution Service. The working group is now closed for nominations. However, if you wish to stay up to date with this work, please get in touch.
Lack of interoperability of tech solutions, systems and tools is a recognised challenge in the policing sector, and indeed more widely across the ecosystem. The InterOp-Pol initiative is member-led and aims to change commercial behaviour and mindset with regards to interoperability challenges, by facilitating the development of a charter. The charter is by industry and for industry and outlines a company’s commitment to openness and interoperability.
