Justice and Emergency Services Management Committee: How do I put myself forward?
Nominations will soon open for 18 techUK members to join our Justice and Emergency Services Management Committee (JESMC). The JESMC is a group of 18 representatives of companies in techUK's membership who work together to oversee the strategic leadership and direction of the programme.
techUK's Justice and Emergency Services (JES) 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.
The role of the JESMC is to steer the strategic direction of the programme, with oversight of the activities undertaken, including building a vibrant public safety sector ecosystem through partnerships and networks, creating opportunities for open, meaningful and early private/public sector engagement and creating thought leadership to contribute to a more informed and collaborative sector.
There are 18 spaces on the JESMC, with one Chair and one Vice Chair position available for election by the newly formed committee.
Six spaces are reserved for Small to Medium Sized Enterprise (SME) representatives.
