Everyday innovation: from ideas to action

**Places are still available so book now to avoid disappointment**

Book your place now, on what promises to be one of the most engaging policing conferences you'll attend this year.

Already booked?
Full joining instructions will be issued shortly to all delegates.

Our conference will focus on creativity and innovation in policing. At a time when policing is facing an unprecedented level of demand, accompanied by growing concerns about the health and wellbeing of the workforce, a look at innovative ideas to help make the job that much easier is required, perhaps more than ever before.

It promises to be one of the most engaging policing conferences this year. Last year covered the 'vulnerability' agenda in its widest form and proved highly popular and successful among delegates. This year delegates can expect even more debate and discussion, with  examples of how innovative ideas are helping policing on a practical 'everyday' basis. You'll hear from innovation experts from outside policing, and use inside experiences to help them land your own. You'll be able to share innovative ideas which, no matter how small, are improving frontline policing.

Here's an outline programme for the day so far, which is subject to change, confirmation and additional content:
