Welcome to techUK’s Emerging Tech in Policing Week!
“Policing is at a critical juncture. We either improve how we harness digital opportunities from existing and emerging technologies, or risk becoming overwhelmed by the demand they create and lose the chance to enhance and modernise our policing services.” (The National Policing Digital Strategy 2020 -2030). What is the role of technology in helping police forces address tomorrow’s challenges? techUK’s ‘Emerging Tech in Policing’ week will showcase how industry is working across policing to drive digital transformation and overcome barriers in emerging technology adoption.
During this week we will be bringing you news, videos, case studies, podcasts and insights from across the technology sector focussing on new digital technologies that have the power to transform policing, from the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud computing to immersive technologies and drones directly from techUK members and stakeholders. Make sure you share your contribution via social media using #DigitalPolicing
Insights will be announced on the day and linked here. You can keep up to date with latest views on our twitter @techUK #DigitalPolicing
