‘Engage, Empower, and Inspire – a Forum for Senior BAME Leaders

ACC Mabs Hussain and Fiona Eldridge, our Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement would like to invite you to the next event in this series.

The Forum is open to Senior BAME Leaders from the rank of Chief Inspector and Police Staff equivalent and aboveif however, there are no BAME Chief Inspectors (or police staff equivalent) in your force, then Inspectors (or police staff equivalent) are also welcome.

If you are interested in taking part, please email hub@college.pnn.police.uk by Monday 23rd March 2020.


The first of these events was last October, but as a reminder, this is the background and purpose:

The forum is supported by the College of Policing through the Senior Leadership Hub. It will be organic and led by its members, who will take personal responsibility for their own professional development. It will enable the exchange of views and ideas to support the development of future senior leaders nationally and also provide a support network to existing senior leaders.

The forum will not have a hierarchical structure and aims to provide inclusivity to all members on an equal basis, with the aim of supporting all staff associations and support networks and without affiliation to a single organisation. It will facilitate senior leaders to meet on a periodic basis to build on a support network sharing good practice, success and challenges already overcome.

SIRO Hydra Exercise **POSTPONED**

This one-day hydra facilitated event will be extremely beneficial to those who currently perform the role of Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) or are likely to in the future.  Through immersive learning the delegate will be called upon to make decisions, and explain the rationale behind them, whilst managing an information breach scenario.  The scenario will explore the management of risk and provide opportunities for developing strategies for mitigating risk.  It will also consider the role and remit of the SIRO, the need for strong information governance and highlight the sources of information and support available to the SIRO.  The scenario is based on a real incident and consequently SIRO's could be called upon to manage such an incident at any time.

Entry requirements:

The course is open to those who currently perform the role of Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) or are likely to in the future at DCC & ACC level or equivalent.

If you require on-site accommodation this is chargeable and will be dependent on availability.  Please contact hub@college.pnn.police.uk for price information.

Attendees will hear a range of speakers describe impactful events and developments that have potential to be shared and adopted across the service. Themes will include national operations challenges, a case study of a high profile national incident and response, learning from Scottish collaboration and leading operations in a political landscape.  Short inputs will stimulate roundtable discussions which will be facilitated and key themes captured and shared amongst participants.

Mentoring for Chief Constables

The Senior Leaders Hub supports appointments and provides CPD opportunities for Chief Officers as well as offering development opportunities for those wishing to progress to the most senior levels of the service. One of the services offered in connection with attendance at e.g. the Senior Leaders Development Centre, is Chief Officer level mentoring. We have seen real value and benefit in mentoring, for both mentors and mentees alike.

Following on from that, we now have a list of Chief Constables who have kindly offered to mentor their newly appointed (or more established) peers.

If you are interested in having the support of a mentor (or if you would like to be a mentor yourself), then please contact us at hub@college.pnn.police.uk.

Facilitated group meetings, to provide women with the opportunity to extend networks and share experiences with other female leaders from across sectors
