Newsam Memorial Lecture speaker announced

An Oxford University professor will give her view on what drives people working in policing

This year's annual Newsam Memorial Lecture will talk about what drives people working in policing.

The lecture, to be held in London on 29 February, is in memory of Sir Frank Newsam, who was the second most senior Home Office civil servant in the immediate post-war years and created the first police college of its kind.

This year Dean Ngaire Woods will give the lecture entitled 'Policing – what it means to be purpose-driven in a modern context.'

Ngaire Woods is the Founding Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, a global school of public policy, and Professor of Global Economic Governance at the University of Oxford.  She founded and is the Director of the Global Economic Governance Programme, and is co-founder (with Robert O. Keohane) of the Oxford-Princeton Global Leaders Fellowship programme.

We will host the lecture in partnership with the Police Training Authority Trust which was created in 2004 with the objective of promoting the development of policing in England and Wales. 

The Newsam Memorial Lecture promises to generate debate and provide an invaluable networking opportunity which will be of benefit for professional and career development.

Officers and police staff who would like to attend can email by 16 February.
