Who we are
Police Rewired is a volunteer-led group dedicated to enthusing and supporting independent developers and makers who have an interest in policing technology, community safety, and fighting crime.
We want to build tools to make people safer.
We will connect independent developers with policing organisations, front-line policing staff, community groups, and partners with interests aligned with ours.
We support and engage our members through a series of hackathons, workshops and meetups.
On November 6th we’re holding our first meet-up at Newspeak House to kick off some exciting new projects. We welcome software developers, designers, and creative problem-solvers!
If you're interested in joining a project, or if you'd like to pitch an idea to other developers - come along and see what's on offer!
