Two Derbyshire Police Federation workplace representatives will be at the annual roads policing conference today and tomorrow.
Jim Cooke and Dave Neate will attend the conference at Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth, Warwickshire to hear about all the latest developments in roads policing and get an update on plans to change the law to give police drivers better legal protection as well as the Home Office led review of roads policing.
It will be the 14th Roads Policing Conference hosted by the Police Federation of England and Wales, and provides an invaluable opportunity for insights, learnings and discussions for those working on the roads.
The conference, which will include an address from policing minister Kit Malthouse, will bring together a range of speakers who work in or have specialist knowledge of aspects of roads policing, with talks, panels and break-out sessions.
It will highlight successes, challenges and best industry practice, and cover a wide range of roads policing topics including use of drones, consistency in driver training and SMART motorways. View the agenda.
The Outstanding Contribution to Roads Policing Award will be presented this evening (28 January). The award is to be presented to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding contribution in the field of roads policing in the capacity of strategic thinking, professional development or operational duties.
