What is the continued impact of COVID-19 on our justice agencies?

Technology and data are the backbone of delivering an outcomes-focused criminal justice system. The need for secure access and sharing information effectively has never been more vital, especially when trying to integrate organisations and delivering joint approaches to justice that support the users and citizens.

We know secure access to technology and data can deliver the right services for users, enhance efficiencies and transform rehabilitation outcomes, however as we start another lockdown at the start of 2021 how is this affecting digital transformation priorities of the justice sector. What does the continued pandemic mean for key projects across the sector and how can we use technology to deliver new ways of delivering justice during these unprecedented times.

Panel Session: Digital, Data and Technology – Delivering the new digital ambition for UK policing in the era of a pandemic

Policing in the UK has reached a critical point. The service either improves how it harnesses digital opportunities from existing and emerging technologies, or there is a risk of becoming overwhelmed by the demand it creates and losing the chance to enhance and modernise policing services. Join our expert panel to discuss the main challenges in implementing and delivering the national digital policing strategy. Our panel will provide different perspectives and share their views on current and future challenges.

  • What have me learnt over the past year and how has technology helped police deliver vital services through COVID-19 and beyond
  • The National Digital Policing Strategy 2020-2030: setting digital, data and technology aims for policing
  • How do we harness the power of digital, data and technology in a seamless way to better protect the communities we serve?
  • The importance of harnessing the power of digital technologies and behaviours to identify the risk of harm and protect the vulnerable in the physical and digital world
  • Adapting to modern IT infrastructure and digital transformation to make policing more efficient and effective.
  • Supporting the training of a diverse and flexible workforce who have new technology-focused capabilities to respond to changing crime and threats
