How can we support police dealing with vulnerability?

Our annual conference will explore how officers can be supported.

​Our annual conference on 30 November will explore how officers can be supported when dealing with vulnerable members of the public.

The main event will include speeches from Lorin LaFave, the mother of 14-year-old Breck Bednar who was groomed online and murdered in Essex in 2014, Chief Constable Simon Bailey, who leads nationally on violence and public protection, and a senior government cabinet member.

There will also be 10 workshops where officers and police staff can hear about best practice from people who work with vulnerable victims, offenders and witnesses across areas including so-called honour-based violence, offender management, crime prevention and problem solving.

Date: Wednesday, 30 November 2016
Time: 10am-4pm
Location: Sunningdale Park, Larch Avenue, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 0QE
Cost: £30 for members of the College of Policing (which is free to sign up to if you are an officer or police staff) and £60 for all other attendees.

The event takes place on Thursday 1 December 2016 at the BT Auditorium and Customer Showcase in London. Rachel Tuffin, College of Policing Director of Knowledge, Research and Education, will be taking part in a debate on the future police workforce.
