Future of public safety services campaign week
This week techUK will highlight what the future of public safety will look like in a digital age #futurepublicsafety.
Welcome to techUK’s future of public safety services campaign week! With the recent launch of the National Digital, Data and Technology Strategy 2020-2030 for policing earlier this year, this timely campaign week will provide an opportunity for our members and stakeholders to share their visions for the future of public safety services in the UK, and how tech trends and solutions will help us get there.
The aim is to launch the techUK community vision of what the future of public safety services looks like, work through key aspects of reaching it, and deliver actions and asks that will help to shape techUK’s activities for the rest of the programme year.
The week will explore everything from the technologies making the vision a reality; to collaboration; to equipping the public safety workforce with the necessary digital skills.
