There are just days to go before this year’s Road Policing Conference where West Midlands Police Federation deputy secretary and national response driving lead Tim Rogers will be speaking.
The event, which has the theme Officer Welfare Matters, is being held in Hinckley, Leicestershire on 29 and 30 January and will be attended by delegates from forces across England and Wales.
Tim will give an update on the campaign he has led calling for a change to legislation to give better protection for police drivers who can face prosecution for driving offences simply for doing their job.
The event is always popular in the roads policing calendar and gives officers the chance to highlight challenges, successes and best industry practice.
This year, conference sessions include an input from the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for roads policing - Chief Constable Anthony Bangham - and a panel session headed by Simon Hill from the Metropolitan Police called ‘When A Pursuit Goes Wrong’.
There will also be an input on police pressures and resilience, which shadow policing minister Louise Haigh will take part in, and delegates will also benefit from a session called ‘Impartiality, Bias and Contamination’ – a case study of attempted murder, led by Frances Senior from forensic collision investigation.
