The Police Federation’s annual national conference starts today and takes place online for the first time.
The theme of the two-day conference is Policing Under Pressure and will see top names from policing lined up to take part in thought-provoking sessions across a broad agenda.
Hosted by radio and TV presenter Ian Collins, today’s agenda includes a live panel discussion on the pressure officers have been under in the last 12 months and a Q & A with a senior cabinet minister who will give a keynote speech alongside the Federation’s national chair John Apter.
Other highlights include the Women in Policing Award, discussions on pay, conditions and pensions and a celebration of some of the nominees for the Police Bravery Awards 2020 and 2021.
Trial by media, policing protests and wellbeing are some of the topics being discussed on Day 2 as well as understanding misogyny in policing, investing in the investigators and recruitment during the pandemic.
Hertfordshire Police Federation secretary Al Wollaston said: “We’ve lived through a tumultuous 15 months or so and our annual conference gives us a chance to assess the impact the pandemic has had on policing and the lessons we can learn.
“Hopefully, as many members as possible will join us for what promises to be an interesting two days.”
