Increasing public safety through better use of data
As part of our ongoing series of roundtable discussions, Civil Service World and MarkLogic would like to invite you to our forthcoming roundtable on better using data in crime prevention and law enforcement.
This discussion will take place on Wednesday 28th June in Westminster, London. The event will run from 12:30 – 14:30 and lunch will be provided.
Law enforcement organisations are not making the most of their data to prevent crime and increase public safety. This premise was set out in the Modern Crime Prevention Strategy, published by the Home Office last year, and supported by the most recent State of Policing report, which said that public safety was being imperilled because police forces could not connect their ICT systems effectively.
Better use of data and data analytics could help law enforcement teams allocate their resources more effectively through predictive policing or by spotting suspicious patterns or activities and identifying vulnerable individuals or groups for support. As the Home Office leads work to improve the use of data through the National Law Enforcement Data Programme, this roundtable will bring together senior civil servants and their peers in the law enforcement community to discuss:
How can the UK law enforcement community maximise opportunities presented by closer data integration to increase public safety?
Topics will include:
- What opportunities exist to better use data in crime prevention and law enforcement?
- Overcoming barriers towards greater data integration such as public concerns, a risk averse civil service culture
- What skills will be needed to make the most of opportunities presented by better use of data?
- Striking the balance between an integrated national strategy and regional deployment of new systems
