Registration will open for N8 PRP partner institutions on 31 March 2021, and non-partners from 14 April 2021.
In May and June 2021, the N8 PRP will be hosting the sixth Policing Innovation Forum which will bring together key academics, police, and other stakeholders together to discuss contemporary challenges in policing and look to develop innovative, practical, and evidence-based solutions.
The theme for this year’s forum is Effective Partnerships in Policing, drawing on case studies, experience, and research. There will be three sessions; the full programme for each session will be made available here.
10 June Policing and Public Health Partnerships
When health and policing overlap it’s because of a crisis. How can police develop better partnerships with healthcare professionals so the aims of law enforcement and public health are better aligned?
Dr Matt Bacon from the University of Sheffield chairs presentations from police and public health practitioners, including Chief Inspector Jack Rowlands of the Metropolitan Police, to consider how police can work more effectively with public health partners to tackle harm reduction, violence reduction, and drug-related deaths.
