Future Policing Market Exploration

Future Policing Market Exploration

The Home Office and National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) are undertaking a market assessment of the availability of cutting-edge solutions and innovative concepts in development that will transform UK policing and security over the next 10 to 20 year period. The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) are therefore exploring the technological landscape across a wide range of capabilities.  

This market exploration asks all of industry and academia for a summary of their innovative solutions and/or ideas requiring further development to help in the following themes:

  1. Data & Information
  1. Automation
  1. Augmentation
  1. Behaviour

Although this market exploration is not a commitment to subsequently launch a formal DASA competition, this work will help to identify potential future investment. Submissions will also be used to inform the Police and Home Office of the technological opportunities available now and for the decades ahead; to expose innovative ideas to the National Police Chiefs’ Council; and to influence technology policy and future procurement planning for UK law enforcement.

Further details including how to provide a cabability submission are available here. Submissions close at midday on 13 November 2020.
