ICT Police Scotland - Open Evening
Thursday 21st February
6.00pm - 8.30pm
Come along to our Open Evening and discover how ICT within Police Scotland is supporting the biggest changes to operational policing in a generation, by implementing a range of new technologies across the Force to digitally enable our staff and officers on the beat. Come and hear from our in-house ICT team how our innovative and revolutionary ICT projects will change the face of policing in Scotland.
We want our officers to be in communities rather than stations and this means giving them the right technology to keep them connected. We will provide a comprehensive overview of our Technology Department and you will have the opportunity to find out more about our current, £21M Operational Mobility project. The objective of this project is to support the deployment of 10,000 mobile devices and associated applications to front-line officers and forensics staff across Scotland.
This event will provide an opportunity to interact with Police Scotland technologists from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. On the evening, we will have a number of stands that will allow you the opportunity to understand more about how different skills and experience are utilised within our ICT Department.
You will also have the opportunity to find out first-hand what it's really like to work at Police Scotland, about our amazing employment benefits and hear about our ambitious plans to use technology to enable better policing services for the Force and for the people of Scotland.
This event is intended to be very informal and to provide you the opportunity to better understand our ICT Department and how our work has a direct impact on the policing services that are delivered to the public in Scotland.
Our Recruitment team wil be available on the evening to answer your questions and discuss current job opportunities within the ICT Department.
If you would like to attend, please register at Eventbrite, or reach out directly to: RecruitmentTransformation@scotland.pnn.police.uk
