Roads Policing Conference
The Roads Policing Conference 2018 took place Tuesday 30 and Wednesday 31 January at Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire.
Hosted by the Police Federation of England and Wales and National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), and sponsored by MIB, the 12th annual conference brought together those who work in the roads policing arena and highlighted the successes, challenges and best industry practice.
This year's theme was ‘Roads Policing – a new approach’.
Some of the topics that were covered in the agenda include:
- Police Pursuits - Chief Constable Anthony Bangham
- Single Intelligence Entry - Detective Superitendent Paul Keasey
- Operation Rackham - Overseas Roads Death Investigation - PC Chris Powling and PC Colin Green, Hampshire Police
- Northumbria Fatal Road Investigation - Inspector Bob Rushbrooke and Sergeant Dave Clement, Northumbria Police
Each year we also recognise officers and staff for going above and beyond with the Outstanding Contribution to Roads Policing Award - Surrey PCs win Roads Policing Award
