Event description

Description

After the success of previous talks, we are pleased to announce a further BCS Talk. BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is committed to making IT good for society. We use the power of our network to bring about positive, tangible change. This talk is supported by OVO Energy Ltd. and Avon and Somerset constabulary.

The talk will discuss Technology in Policing - What’s happening, what is working and what more is required?

This talk will be delivered by Chief Constable Andy Marsh QPM. Andy joined the Avon and Somerset force in 1987 and has been the Chief Constable since 2016. Between 2013 and 2016 whilst serving as both Deputy Chief Constable and Chief Constable of Hampshire Police he led a large scale transformation programme leading the force to be recognised as one of the best value for money nationally. This included being the first force in UK to personal issue Body Worn cameras to police officers. Since returning to Avon and Somerset, he has led the development of an internationally acclaimed approach to data using advanced predictive analytics and visual graphics to prioritise and manage demand, and has spearheaded a digital mobilisation programme equipping officers and staff with the latest technology they need to do their job. In 2018, he was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal (QPM).
