Westminster attended the conference where Under-Vehicle Security Screening equipment was on demonstration to the speakers and delegates. Inside the venue was a large stand with various interactive equipment on display or demonstrated where possible, such as the B.O.S.S. Body Orifice Security Scanner Chairs, Walk-Through Metal Detectors, Covert Satellite Tracking Systems, Bomb and Phone Frequency Jammers and Portable X-Ray Equipment for unattended bags or vehicle inspection.

Technical Sales Manager, Guy McNeill, whom organised the event for Westminster comments:
"I was pleased that the Sales Team and I had an opportunity to speak directly with so many of our UK clients in person; and to learn of their problems so we can work with them to help improve the Policing and Justice Sectors with technologically leading solutions."

With the Government’s Efficiency and Reform Group meeting a mere stone’s throw from the QEII Conference Centre, delegates at GovNet Communication’s Modernising Justice Through IT 2010 conference last week were told by Jan Berry, the Independent Reducing Bureaucracy in Policing Advocate, "If any time is right to make a change, that time is now."
