Confirmed Speakers:

  • Further speakers to be announced



The recent rise in crime has prompted the Government to commit to recruit 20,000 police officers over the next 3 years through the “Be a force for all” campaign. The recruitment drive aims to “give the police the resources they need…cut crime, get criminals off the streets and keep people safe”. The National Police Chief’s Council’s Police Vision 2025 has also set out a vision to re-tailor police services to meet society’s complex and diverse needs – highlighting constabularies must recruit and retain a workforce with diverse skill sets and backgrounds to meet the diverse needs required to protect neighbourhoods.

Join us this March for an up-to-date brief on the latest policy, funding and leading good practice in police recruitment and retention to ensure you drive staff numbers within your force, retain current employees and ensure your force is fully equipped to meet the diverse needs to protect neighbourhoods.

Key issues to be addressed:

  • Overview of the “Be a force for all” Campaign: Government Plans to Recruit 20,000 police officers over next 3 years
  • Meeting the Requirement to Recruit 6,000 Officers within a Year
  • The Best Ways to Access and Apply for Funding for your Constabulary
  • Police Vision’s 2025: Tailoring Recruitment Strategies to meet the Future Development of the National Police Service
  • Recognising the Challenges of Retention in Today’s Policing Environment
  • Case Studies from Constabularies that have Successfully Driven-up Numbers in their Force
