Security and Policing 2020 – Participate in our immersive features

Published on 25 November 2019

We’re looking for companies to get involved with two immersive features at the Home Office Security and Policing event 2020.

There will be two different features this year.

The first, entitled ‘Plan. Travel. Visit. Your future secure journey’ will focus on showcasing and demonstrating solutions and technology that improve security around:

  • Pre-journey planning – what the future may look like in screening both passengers and cargo before it enters the UK or a UK airport for departure. Specifically, helping the traveling public to plan their journeys with ease and demonstrate ways in which the pre-journey process could be easier and more efficient by reducing or streamlining perceptible touch points.
  • Aviation and travel security – to demonstrate a future travel state which demonstrates less intrusive, faster and more efficient screening, whilst retaining/improving all the key security elements.
  • Crowded places and infrastructure – how we can ensure the safety of visitors to busy and popular tourist attractions, concert arenas and sports stadiums. The focus is on demonstrating solutions and approaches necessary for ensuring the safety and security of large crowds against a range of potential threats.

The second, entitled ‘Knife Crime: A 21st Century Approach’ will focus on showcasing and demonstrating solutions and technology across three themes:

  • Data – demonstrating the joining up of datasets across transport, local hubs and county lines to enable police to make better enforcement decisions; breaking up gangs, taking weapons off the streets, and diverting would be offenders. The aim is to enable more informed, intelligence-led policing with an enforcement focus, but also help police to support young people that may have been exploited or victimised.
  • Technology – focused on modernising knife detection solutions to be more preventative, less intrusive, and resource efficient. Solutions would need to be operable by law enforcement and we are interested in behavioural detection elements for a smarter approach.
  • Community Engagement – solutions for balancing enforcement powers and capability with ‘softer’ measures to address the root cause of offences, by encouraging positive behaviours and information-sharing within communities, working collaboratively with the police. It is a ‘whole system’ approach to leverage key influencers – peers, teachers, siblings, social workers, and parents; and could be technology-enabled or another form of initiative.

There are several ways to get involved, ranging from sponsorship opportunities to product placement and showcasing. Find out more about the opportunities available on the Security and Policing website 2020.
