Theresa May will once again attend the Federation Conference
The Police Federation’s annual conference will debate the extraordinary issues being faced in policing and will give officers the chance to ensure their voices are heard.
Speakers at the event in Bournemouth next week will include the Home Secretary Theresa May, Nick Herbert, police minister, Sir Hugh Orde, president of ACPO, and representatives from across the criminal justice sector.
Federation representatives from around the country will be given the opportunity to question speakers and debate an array of issues – including the unprecedented attacks on police pay and conditions outlined in the Winsor reports.
Paul McKeever, chair of the Police Federation, says: “This pivotal event in the policing calendar presents us all with the unique opportunity to share good practice and to debate the extraordinary issues we are facing regionally and nationally.”
The future of police pay and conditions, Olympics, public order and stalking law reform will all feature at the main conference forums.
The Women’s Eve of Conference agenda includes a presentation on the Independent Police Commission Review of Policing – the female police officers’ perspective by Professor Jennifer Brown. Each rank committee will hold their own separate debates around issues particularly pertinent to that rank, each featuring a keynote speech by the committee chairperson. Julie Nesbit, chair of the Constables’ Central Committee, John Giblin, chair of the Sergeants’ Central Committee and Alan Jones, chair of the Inspectors’ Central Committee, will address concerns raised, covering a diverse range of issues and debate.
Annual Conference 2012 will be held at the Bournemouth International Centre, 15 – 17 May.
