The new Policing Chief Scientific Advisor, Professor Paul Taylor, has launched work to develop a comprehensive Police Science and Technology Strategy. This will set a clear direction showing how policing can benefit further from the best science and technology, shape future technologies, and build the Police Service for the 21st century.
It is important that the strategy is owned and delivered by the wider community involved in Policing S&T, and that its creation is a collaborative effort. Paul wants to embrace the best thinking from across Government, Policing, Academia, and Industry, and create a strategy that articulates how as a community we can grow to put ethical research, evidence, and innovation into practice at the heart of effective policing.
We are therefore partnering with Paul’s team (comprising Home Office, DSTL and PA Consulting resources), to host a roundtable with Industry that explores how Policing can access science and technology products and services, in the short, medium and long term. We’ll be looking at all aspects of prevention, detection and protection, and those capabilities where science and technology could have the greatest impact (such as monitoring, analytics, operational enhancement and behaviours) as well as thinking about the ways of working needed to create a sustainable innovation culture.
The roundtable will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams with an agenda sent out nearer the time. This is an interactive session with attendees asked to come prepared to get involved in the conversation.
