On Tuesday 30 June (probably today as you read this!) I will be attending a conference hosted by the Institute for Public Policy Research (ippr) entitled Fitting the Bill: a one day conference on the future of policing in the UK.
It’s a first for me, as the ippr have very kindly given me, as a blogger, a press pass to the event. So, I will be blogging about what is said and discussed. I will also be tweeting from the event. To read the tweets (those of you not yet signed up to my Twitter feed simply go to: twitter.com/openeyecomms).
The conference speaker list is comprehensive and includes Alan Johnson (Home Secretary), Chris Grayling MP, Peter Neyroud (NPIA) David Blunkett MP, Angela O’Connor (NPIA), Louise Casey, Kate Flannery (HMIC), Bob Jones (APA), Stephen Rimmer (Home Office), Rick Muir (ippr), Denis O’Connor (HMIC), Bernard Hogan-Howe (Merseyside Police), Alf Hitchcock (NPIA), Ian Johnston (Supts Assoc), Jan Berry and Ken Livingstone.
Subjects for discussion include: Policing and the public: accountability and public engagement, Managing performance without targets, Leadership and The future of policing.
Looks like a good day in prospect. I will try and keep you updated on Twitter.
