Safety and Welfare in Policing 2018


The safety and wellbeing of frontline officers and support staff alike is becoming an increasingly prominent issue. Funding and personnel cuts mean members of the police service are working longer for less, often with less resources to do their job with. Join this briefing in London on the 5th December to learn how forces are striving to keep their officers as safe and well as possible in austere circumstances.

You will hear about government action to deter attacks on frontline staff as well as methods to support the wellbeing of all police employees. Learn from colleagues how their best practices can help shape your strategies and discover how you can overcome material challenges to keep your staff and the community as safe as possible. 

Key Issues to be Addressed:

  • The Assaults on Emergency Workers Act and what it will mean for frontline officers
  • Working alongside occupational health professionals to ensure good safety practices when on duty
  • Learning from best practices across different forces
  • What will the new national police welfare service look like?
  • Dealing with workloads and boosting morale: how this will impact operational effectiveness 
  • Working with less: how to overcome welfare challenges during a time of longer hours and fewer resources 

About the Day:

The morning session will look at the current landscape for frontline safety, how officers are protected from harm and can be supported. It will also be an opportunity to understand how forces can better promote the health of their staff

In the afternoon delegates will focus on improving the welfare and wellbeing of officers. What is being done to ensure members of the police service are getting the best support possible? 

Morning refreshments will be served upon arrival with a networking lunch to follow. Any special needs or dietary requirements should be notified to us upon booking.
