POLICE GOVERNANCE SUMMIT 2018:
Preparing for the Challenges Ahead

With policing governance under ever-increasing scrutiny, it is absolutely essential that those responsible for work in this area are equipped with the knowledge and tools to fulfil their role.

CoPaCC is hosting the first Police Governance Summit 2018 this June to support OPCCs, Police and Crime Panels and other relevant stakeholders in meeting the challenges that lie ahead. 

Police governance has developed considerably since PCCs were first elected six years ago.  In addition to the potential for PCCs to take on fire governance, OPCCs undertake a considerable and growing range of policy-related work.  OPCCs are expected to deliver much speedier and wider support than the former police authority secretariats.  The challenges keep coming, from policing service and performance, to strategic development and change.

CoPaCC is pleased to present inaugural Police Governance Summit 2018 in conjunction with event sponsor Grant Thornton UK LLP, the leading police assurance provider and conference organisation partner CJS Event Solutions who have extensive experience of running events in the police sector.
