The Department for International Trade (DIT) publishes the list of international delegations invited to Security and Policing on gov.uk each year shortly before the event and updates this to indicate which countries attended after the event.

Since the creation of DIT there has been one Security and Policing event, in March 2017. The number of delegates who were officially invited and planned to attend the event in 2017 is shown in the table below.
