How emerging technologies are improving the efficiency and operational effectiveness, will be the key focus of The Emergency Services Show 2019, taking place in Hall 5 at the NEC BIrmingham on 18th & 19th September. NCOA believes that this 'free to attend' event offers a unique opportunity for all law enforcment officers to discover new technologies and techniques, as well as to access support services and networks.

Exhibition visitors will be able to see and touch the latest kit and discuss operational requirements with over 450 suppliers. Over 80 businesses and organisations will be exhibiting for the first time this year.

Four dedicated theatres on the show floor will host a wide range of CPD-accredited seminar sessions focusing on Emerging Technologies, IT developments, Health & Wellbeing and Lessons Learnt from operational incidents.

The Emerging Technologies Theatre co-sponsored by MSA, and Zebra Technologies will explore how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning can be used to improve emergency response. It will also focus on the training benefits of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and look at emerging vehicle technologies including electric vehicles and connected cars.

In the Lessons Learnt Theatre sponsored by UCLan sessions include Murder is Everyone’s Business covering the criminal investigation of a gang-related murder, where multi-agency collaboration led to many successful convictions. There will be a case study on the Salisbury nerve agent incident and the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit will explain how Scotland has been so successful in dealing with knife crime. 

Sessions in the IT Theatre sponsored by Excelerate will include how the Cloud is pushing operational efficiency on the frontline and how 5G could improve operational response. The Police ICT company will also be speaking and there will be updates on the Emergency Services Network.

In the Health & Wellbeing Theatre there will be sessions on psychological impacts on control room staff, equality and diversity, and men’s mental health.

The SkyBound Rescuer Drone Seminar Day on 19th September will share the latest innovative thinking and equip visitors with the strategic and tactical knowledge to apply to future drone operations. The seminar day opens with a thought-provoking presentation on Public Safety Drones by internationally renowned keynote speaker, Charles Werner; a pioneer of drones in public safety across the USA.
