Nominations are now OPEN to join techUK’s Interoperability in Policing Working Group (IPWG) - 2022-2023

There are 18 spaces on the working group, with one Chair and one Vice Chair position available for nomination and election

About the IPWG

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 IPWG is a member-led group acting as a central platform for driving forward interoperability and aims to change commercial behaviour and mindset with regards to challenges surrounding interoperability.

As a key component of the Digital Policing Strategy, interoperability, together with parallel initiatives, national technology standards and Police data quality, can enable more effective data sharing and deliver more efficient business processes, leading to better Policing and Criminal Justice outcomes.

The existing group has made significant progress in these areas, including building relationships with key senior stakeholders across the Home Office, National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPSS), Police Digital Service (PDS) and with forces. The newly elected group will continue to build on this work and also explore new and emerging opportunities.
