Security and Policing is the official Government global security event, offering a world-class opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest advances in delivering national security and resilience with UK suppliers, colleagues and Government officials.

Hosted by the Home Office’s Joint Security & Resilience Centre, the three-day event is attended by senior Government officials and it is planned there will once again be an unrivalled line-up of senior keynote addresses led by Ministers.

Over 300 exhibitors will showcase their latest products and services, along with a variety of product demos, panel discussions and immersive experiences addressing security and law enforcement challenged faced in the UK today.

Cranfield University will be taking part in Security and Policing this year as part of the Academic RiSC stand. In September 2019 the University took over leading the Academic Resilience and Security Community (A-RiSC), a network of 30 UK universities formed to help Government and industry access academic experts and the latest research and knowledge in national security.

Academic RiSC is a portal to UK universities working on national security and resilience challenges. It provides Government and industry access to expertise and latest knowledge.
