Your invitation to a demand reduction workshop next month

Officers and staff are being invited to attend a special workshop next month where they will get the chance hear the latest expert views and advice on how to reduce demand in policing.

‚ÄčThe two-day demand reduction workshop is open to all police officers and staff across England and Wales and is free to attend.

The event will give officers and staff opportunities to develop their skills, share best practice and attend a series of talks from a range of experts on topics including digital engagement, mental health and anti-social behaviour.  

The workshops will include a talk from Durham Constabulary Chief Constable Mike Barton on problem solving and the College's Nick Keane discussing how to engage with people using social media.
Other speakers at the event will be the College's Mental Health Lead, Inspector Michael Brown, looking at the impact mental health cases have on neighbourhood policing and a joint presentation from Merseyside Police and Durham Constabulary on a new initiative to get young people to work with local officers.

The workshops include representatives from North Yorkshire Police talking about a partnership scheme with a local council and other groups which led to a dramatic reduction in reports of young people going missing.

There will be a presentation from the College to explain how officers and staff can gather evidence to find out how effective a new initiative or idea to reduce demand will be.

The workshop is from 9am to 3.30pm on Wednesday, February 8 and Thursday, February 9 at Merseyside Police HQ.
