The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) is returning this week to the Home Office’s premier security equipment event – Security and Policing 2012 – for the third consecutive year.
The event, which takes place in Farnborough from 30th January to 2nd February, is the UK’s only secure event for displaying the latest security equipment for law enforcement and public security, with exhibitors carefully selected following a stringent application procedure.
The exhibition is attended by police forces both from the UK and worldwide, including Chief Constables and their department representatives, as well as the emergency services and government departments such as the prison service, customs and immigration services, government security and the Ministry of Defence.
This year’s exhibition includes a full programme of briefings on topics such as technical surveillance, conflict management and an Olympic security update from the Government’s Olympic Security Directorate (OSD), with whom the BSIA liaises closely via its dedicated Project Director for 2012, David Evans. Contributors from further afield will include the European Commission and the US Department of Homeland Security.
James Kelly, Chief Executive of the BSIA, comments: “The BSIA is delighted to be part of the prestigious event. This is one of the most significant closed police and security equipment exhibitions in the UK that enjoys a fantastic international reputation.”
“Exhibiting at the event will enable the BSIA to establish further contact with key stakeholders such as the Police and Government and demonstrate how the security industry can work alongside them to better protect the nation. The exhibition also provides an ideal opportunity for the BSIA’s Export team to engage with overseas visitors to maximise the potential for working together on international security issues.”
