The Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology (CAST) are expanding their interest in video analytics from applications used for the protection of the critical national infrastructure to include law enforcement applications. All Police Forces and law enforcement agencies have contributed to a list of 89 potential scenarios where law enforcement considers video analytics to be of value. This list has been rendered to the 6 that are considered the most valuable.
At this stage, Home Office are asking for expressions of interest from industry and academia to attend an explanatory workshop on the 31st of March at British Transport Police Headquarters in Camden, London. At this work shop all 89 scenarios will be revealed and discussions can take place with Home Office staff and Operational Police on the 6 most valuable scenarios and how it is intended to further them.
It is asked that only one representative from each company or university should attend as it is anticipated that there will be a great interest in this use of technology for law enforcement. If it is found that interest is greater than logistics will allow, consideration will be given to holding a further meeting. All scenarios will be sent electronically to all interested parties in all cases. Expressions of interest for this event must be submitted to the following mailbox SIDC@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk by 3rd March.
If any interested party is attending the Police and Security exhibition at Farnborough from 10th to 12thMarch and would like a brief description of the project, please contact Martin O’Farrell, Capability Adviser, Protective Security through the Home Office reception at the Exhibition.
