techUK, once again, is delighted to being supporting the Police ICT Summit. The team have been working closely with Police ICT Company on two panel sessions covering two important topic areas. 1. Interoperability, which will include panelists from AWS, Police ICT Company and the Home Office. 2. Data Ethics, which will be moderated by Georgie Henley, Jusitce & Emergency Services Programme Manager with panelists from Clue Consulting, West Midlands Police and the NPCC Data Ethics Lead, Richard Lewis.
The Police Digital Summit 2021 is now open to techUK members for both delegate registrations and expressions of interest in sponsorship opportunities.
In keeping with world events of 2020, this year’s Summit is titled Maximising the Digital Opportunity, and is going totally digital over three days, 2-4 February 2021 – utilising the power of Microsoft Teams.
The National Policing Digital Strategy, launched in January 2020, emphasised that the pace of change has never been this fast, yet it will never be this slow again. Never more so than during 2020 has technology been relied upon so heavily to help us adapt and revolutionise the way in which we interact, plan and deliver our services and enable workforces and the public to stay connected.
We are living through the remarkable advances of a fully technology-enabled society, borne out of necessity but affording huge additional opportunities to policing and its public and private sector partners. The police service has long needed to catch up, and keep up, with a constantly evolving digital landscape. Now, however, it is seizing current opportunities at a pace we could never have envisaged.
The event will harness the flexibility of a digitally-empowered audience to deliver a range of interactive sessions containing a mix of keynote speakers, breakout sessions, feedback, challenge and discussion forums.
Police Digital Summit is once again open to both the policing and the supplier communities. Expressions of interest in the available sponsorship opportunities are being invited by 8 December 2020. Please also note that in order to achieve a 50/50 ratio of suppliers to policing delegates, a limited number of tickets will be issued to suppliers initially and an automated waiting list will be operated, with further tickets released periodically thereafter on a first come, first serve basis. Details of delegate entry fees and sponsorship package information is available at www.policedigital.org

Georgie is dedicated to representing suppliers by creating a voice for those who are selling into blue lights and the justice system, but also by helping them in navigating this market. Georgie is committed to creating a platform for collaboration, from engaging with industry and stakeholders to understand the latest innovations, to the role tech can play in responding to a range of issues our justice and emergency services are facing
Prior to joining techUK, Georgie managed a Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) in Westminster. She worked closely with the Metropolitan Police and London borough councils to prevent and reduce the impact of crime on the business community. Her work ranged from the impact of low-level street crime and anti-social behaviour on the borough, to critical incidents and violent crime.
