Security Events

We facilitate the showcasing of security capabilities by co-ordinating UK Pavilions at key global Security exhibitions. Many of these are hosted in partnership with the UK Government.

We also organise the annual Home office Security and Policing event together with a series of Public Security Exhibitions throughout the year.

Topical monthly Member briefings cover key domestic and international security related programmes and initiatives.
