Policing Innovation Forum 2021: What Works in Police Partnerships? @ Online
May 12 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Effective Partnerships: how can police work with academia, business, health care providers and each other to better serve their communities?

In May and June 2021, The N8 PRP Policing Innovation Forum is bringing together key academics, police, and stakeholders to discuss contemporary challenges in policing and develop innovative, practical, and evidence-based solutions.

The theme for this year’s forum is Effective Partnerships in Policing, with events on ‘What Works in Police Partnerships?’ (12 May), ‘Partnering Up Against Cybercrime’ (27 May), and ‘Policing and Public Health Partnerships’ (10 June). The full programme for each session is available here.

12 May What Works in Police Partnerships?

What can successful partnerships teach us about what works in partnerships between police forces, and with academia? How can police and academia foster robust, collaborative, critical partnerships in a time of public debate about the role of the police?

Prof Joanna Shapland chairs a programme featuring Matt Parr CB, Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services and Richard Reeves of the North West Underwater Search & Marine Unit discussing inter-force partnerships; views from USA and UK universities on research partnerships in a time of declining trust in the police; and Dr Layla Skinns on partnership responses to vulnerability in police custody. The full programme is available here.

10 June – Policing and Public Health Partnerships

When health and policing overlap it’s usually because of a crisis. How can police develop better partnerships with healthcare professionals so the aims of law enforcement and public health are more closely aligned?

Dr Matt Bacon from the University of Sheffield chairs presentations on how police can work more effectively with public health partners to tackle harm reduction, violence reduction, and drug-related deaths. With views from forensic psychology and harm and violence reduction units across the country, presenters consider how to tackle stalking and abuse, integrating data and community views, working in the context of the pandemic, and the DIVERT police custody diversion programme.  The full programme is available here.
