Security & Policing 2021 presents the ideal setting to truly learn about the innovations, 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, Security & Policing will be centred around three core themes of resilience, recovery and rebuild:
- Resilience – showcasing leading solutions to existing and emerging global threats
- Recovery – connecting Government and industry to rise to the current challenges
- Rebuild – presenting the latest technology and innovation for a secure future
A range of dedicated features run along side the extensive exhibition, making this a completely immersive experience for both visitors and exhibitors alike.
There will be a programme of senior Keynote Addresses led by UK Ministers at Security & Policing 2021, as well as other major speakers across the event including key senior officials from the National Security Secretariat, the Home Office and other Government departments and associated agencies.
For 2021 we are revitalising the Government Zones with new layouts and a new Centre Stage feature to bring you even greater access to Government departments. Engage with officials and operational staff from a range of UK Government departments and law enforcement agencies.
