Security & Policing 2021 Preview

An unmissable virtual showcase of future technologies

Security & Policing – the official Government global security event – will be held online this year between 9-11 March 2021, offering a world-class opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest advances in delivering national security and resilience with UK suppliers, UK Government officials and senior decision makers across law enforcement and security from the UK and overseas.

Hosted by the Home Office’s Joint Security & Resilience Centre (JSaRC), the three-day, online, closed event will give approved visitors and exhibitors access to an innovative, digital event experience from the comfort and safety of their own workspace, at a time when we cannot meet in person.

75 ADS members and Special Interest Groups will be exhibiting at the event, which is set to host over 6,500 Home Office approved visitors and just under 200 leading UK industry and Government exhibitors.

Speaking ahead of the event, the Head of JSaRC, Angela Essel, said: “Moving into its 39th year, Security and Policing 2021 will continue to enable and facilitate engagement between industry, academia and Government.

“As your hosts since 2019, myself and the JSaRC team are committed to providing a platform for the sharing of government’s thinking and the showcasing solutions for National Security. The show programme, delivered this year via an exciting digital platform, will be filled with keynote presentations from senior Government and law enforcement officials, features such as our very own Government Zone and the highly accoladed Fusion Forum.”

JSaRC and Government partners are committed to working with industry and academia to bring the very best of Security & Policing (S&P) online this March, to enable the UK security and resilience sector to continue to develop and collaborate on the products, services and capabilities needed to cut crime, prevent terrorism, detect illegal immigration and promote growth.

Security & Policing presents the ideal setting to learn about the innovation, policies and equipment available to respond to the latest and future security challenges and threats. This year in response to the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing to evolve security and policing through innovation, centred around event’s three core themes of Resilience, Recovery and Rebuild.
