Home Secretary and Metropolitan Police Commissioner at College conference

Police officers and staff are invited to the College of Policing's annual conference, which focuses on better policing.

Police officers and staff are invited to the College of Policing's annual conference to be held on the 12 November 2015.

This year's event, entitled For Better Policing, will include a keynote speech from Home Secretary Theresa May and a briefing on the College's new programme to establish an education qualifications framework for policing.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, will join the College's Director of Knowledge, Research and Education, Rachel Tuffin, to explore the benefits of partnership working.

Dr Sam Peach from the College, will address the conference on proposals from the College to establish an education qualification framework for policing, aimed at recognising the skills those working in policing use and will need to be successful in the future.

There will be a number of other masterclasses available, while delegates will hear presentations from the College's Knowledge, Research and Practice lead Nerys Thomas, who will speak about how national guidance for police - known as Authorised Professional Practice – will be developed using the evidence base of ‘what works’.

There will also be a discussion panel with key figures from policing.

College of Policing chief executive Chief Constable Alex Marshall said:

"This year's conference is all about how we can improve practice across policing.

“Delegates will hear from senior figures in policing, along with the Home Secretary, on what is being done to set standards and develop the service to ensure all officers and staff are equipped to do the job to the best of their ability.”

Officers and staff who have signed up to the College’s Members’ Hub on the Police OnLine Knowledge Area (POLKA) are being offered half-price tickets at £30. Those who are not registered to be members but are still interested in attending the conference will be charged £60.

Tickets that include all refreshments and overnight accommodation at Sunningdale can be booked for an additional price.

Join the Members’ Hub.
