Digital Justice & Policing 2023

Accelerating The Modernisation Of Justice Services In Scotland​

Thursday 07 November 2023
Technology & innovation Centre, Glasgow

Digital and data are transforming the way we deliver justice services in Scotland, from an enhanced user experience for victims and witnesses, to better coordination of evidence between policing and the courts.

 Digital Justice & Policing 2023 will bring together stakeholders from across the justice landscape, to work out the next steps for a system that is remaking itself in the digital age.

Join us in Glasgow to hear how AI is helping policing to predict crime or cloud platforms transforming how the judiciary interacts with victims, witnesses and the legal community in bringing cases to trial.

Digital Justice & Policing is the largest gathering for digital justice practitioners in Scotland, where stakeholders gather to hear how investment in technology is helping the police and courts to modernise frontline service delivery, from data-driven innovation and smart devices to cloud-based platforms.

The annual event will review how centuries old systems have been irreversibly changed for the better and how the next wave of innovation will help join up the Courts, Government, Police and Victims’ groups.

Hear how the national ‘recover, renew and transform’ approach is being supported by an ongoing revolution in frontline policing – from digital forensics, evidence sharing and drones to body worn video.
