This event is delivered annually with the NPCC (National Police Chiefs Council) and the Digital Intelligence and Investigation Programme recognised staff delivering exceptional work.

Often criticised for being unable to respond to the threat of digital crime, the law enforcement community is proving that this is no longer true through the incredible achievements recognised and celebrated in the International Digital Investigation & Intelligence Awards.

Excellence in digital investigation and cyber capability across the community is commended throughout international, national, regional and local law enforcement agencies and their partner organisations.

Each year, the awards focus on innovation across the previous 12 months, promoting and encouraging collaboration, progression and passion in the field.


Supported and attended by a significant number of leading international and UK law enforcement organisations, senior stakeholders involved dedicate their time to the success of the event, coming together to recognise the incredible and groundbreaking work of their colleagues.

“I thought the award ceremony was fabulous; incredible work by incredible people was celebrated and shared. It will lead to improved linkages nationally and I have no doubt that this will, in addition to our other initiatives, help us to continue to reduce harm and save lives. I look forward to attending next year!”

“The highlight for me has been meeting the nominees, hearing about their experiences and seeing their sheer passion and determination for the work they undertake. It has been incredible to see all of the different police forces, our international colleagues and partners working together to protect the public.”

Keep on with putting on an amazing event! The attention to detail and level of attendees will make this THE EVENT to attend each year I’ve no doubt.

“It is a truly fantastic event that means so very much to the nominees and consequently supports and improves policing.

“Congratulations on the success of yet another amazing awards evening. Thank you for the opportunity you offer in recognition of the many amazing people who do amazing things in the digital world we police.

“I have met some simply extraordinary people who are passionate about what they do and have achieved innovative outcomes. It  demonstrates a remarkable level of skill across a wide range of forces and a commitment to share that experience to benefit the wider community

“It’s been really impressive to see what individual officers and small teams are achieving all over the country in getting to grips with an ever changing and challenging technological landscape to protect the public.
