The latest developments and advances in the policing of our roads will be discussed at a conference next week.
Derbyshire Police Federation members are being urged to register for the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) Roads Policing Conference 2021, a virtual event open to members and workplace representatives for the first time — and organisers are keen to get as many as possible signed up.
Run along similar lines to this year’s successful annual conference, members who register but cannot make the event will be able to catch up via a special on-demand service which will be available for 30 days after the event, on Wednesday 29 September.
Derbyshire branch chair Tony Wetton said: “The Roads Policing Conference is a terrific event and I would encourage all our members to register to take part.
“There are a lot of interesting topics on the agenda this year and it is important for everyone to keep up to date with developments in this area of the police service.
“Conferences such as this give members an opportunity to catch up on new ideas, discuss best practice and meet up with colleagues, so I would urge them to get involved.”
The timetable features keynote speeches from national Police Federation representatives and officials, live panel discussions and Q & As on critical areas of focus for roads policing, continuing professional development certified sessions on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and a live operational roads policing exercise.
The winner of the PFEW Outstanding Contribution to Roads Policing Award will also be announced during the conference.
The event will again be hosted by talkRADIO presenter Ian Collins and will feature addresses from national chair John Apter, national roads policing lead Gemma Fox, policing minister Kit Malthouse and shadow policing minister Sarah Jones.
