Realising Digital Change in Policing: Policing, Information and Data

The Digital Policing Strategy 2030 presents an ambitious new vision for the future of digital and technology in policing in the UK.

Outline of the Day

The conference will open with an introduction from Alison Lowe, West Yorkshire Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime and a keynote from Gina Gill, Chief Digital and Information Officer at the Ministry of Justice.

The first session will focus on the challenge of initially understanding and realising the value of technology. The pandemic has accelerated the shift to digital and we will explore how police services have responded. A systems-based approach, developed with and for police services, will be presented which provides a methodology for establishing the value of technology for forces and redesigning areas of work in a holistic manner. This will be followed by a panel discussion on accelerating digital change, where panellists reflect on their own practice. Panellists include Steve Whatson, Deputy Programme Director, Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme and Chief Superintendent Phil Davies, Greater Manchester Police.

In the afternoon, we will explore research and practice that illuminates emerging digital capabilities delivered through mobile technology. We will present research results on the use of self-service analytics and artificial intelligence by UK police services based on analysis of four police cases and UK inter-agency initiatives. This will be followed by a panel discussion. Panellists include Inspector Richard Atherton, Police Adoption Specialist at the Police Digital Service and Chief Superintendent Mark Nottage, Kent Police.

Our final session will focus on partnership working. The recent PEEL spotlight report: The Hard Yards – Police-to-police collaboration notes that this is an area of concern for all forces and asks forces to have effective systems to track the benefits of collaborations. We will provide empirical evidence of the challenges and benefits of police-to-police partnerships and police-private sector partnerships. This will be followed by our final panel discussion which will bring into focus the perspectives of other services and organisations on partnership working with the police. Panellists include Chris Lucas, British APCO Vice President and Trevor Baldwin, Head of Service Development at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The event will conclude with a dinner, sponsored by Motorola, where discussion will be stimulated by a presentation by Alan Wood, Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme - User Led Assurance, who will discuss partnership working with discussion led by Claire Hursell, Head of IT and Business Change for Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
