Brexit: Local implications for policing and security
Central London: Wednesday, 14th September from 12noon to 3pm
The result of the EU referendum was somewhat unexpected. Many of the implications are yet to be fully understood, including for policing and security. The NATIONAL priority has been to focus on the implications for those areas essential for keeping citizens safe – such as the European Arrest Warrant, access to Europol data and Joint Investigation Teams, and the agreements relating to fast time intelligence sharing. But relatively little work to date has been undertaken on the LOCAL policing and security implications arising from Brexit.
Pencil the date – Wednesday, 14th September, 12 noon to 3pm in central London – into your diary.
Leading law firm Field Fisher have joined forces with CoPaCC, the policing governance experts and publishers of Policing Insight, to organise a free half-day workshop to help identify and examine these local implications. Our lunchtime event will include expert speakers who will highlight key areas of interest.
This event is particularly suitable for Police and Crime Commissioners, their Chief Executives and policy officials, as well as senior police officers and their staff, Police and Crime Panel members and officials, plus other key stakeholders working (or interested) in this area.
This is an opportunity for key opinion formers and decision makers to explore how best to prepare local policing and security plans for Brexit. In addition to hearing the expert views, participants will be invited to share their views on appropriate areas of focus.
Those attending the event will subsequently receive a complimentary copy of the CoPaCC Thematic Report “Brexit: Local implications for policing and security”.
Booking details will follow next week. In the meantime, please pencil the date – Wednesday, 14th September, 12 noon to 3pm in central London – into your diary.
