APCC and NPCC Partnership Summit 2020 #policeconf20

Our very successful joint summit between the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) and the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) was recently held in Westminster. 

The event brought together senior leaders, politicians, experts and decision-makers from across policing, criminal justice and other stakeholders. Over the course of the two days they had thought-provoking discussions on solving some of the most complex issues facing law enforcement. Key themes explored included: implementing a programme of recruitment for 20,000 new officers; responding to current operational challenges, including serious violence; building a smarter policing system; and ensuring a greater focus on crime prevention.

We also had keynote speeches from the Home Secretary, APCC Chair, Katy Bourne OBE and NPCC Chair, Martin Hewitt QPM, in what was an extremely busy and vibrant event. 

A huge thank you to everyone that gave up their time and made a contribution, and of course all of the sponsors event organisers.
