The theme of Maximising the Digital Opportunity was embraced by the hosts, who invited the NEP to produce the conference using Teams Live – technology that is being rolled out across all forces.
Over the course of three days, the Police ICT forum offered officers, staff, government and tech industry colleagues the opportunity to attend up to different 34 sessions and hear from a total of 68 experts in their fields.
Nearly 600 delegates signed up – record for the yearly event. A lively Q&A ran throughout with a number of police and sponsor led breakout rooms, allowing attendees to put their questions direct.
WeCops also dedicated their bi-weekly Twitter chat to the subject of improving police technology.
“It was an enormous undertaking for a small team from the NEP and Police ICT - but a perfect showcase for the Microsoft technology policing now has access to,” says event director David Bailey.
“The feedback has been tremendous and all delivered by people working from home, in different parts of the country.
“It really shows just how far we have come over the past 12 months.”
