Taking place at the BT Tower, 45 Maple Street, London W1T 4JZ, this inaugural Cityforum policing round table Reimagining police public contact – technology, people and public confidence takes place on Wednesday 5 December 2018.
Policing, as we all know, is facing unprecedented pressures in the face of ongoing austerity, increasing demand and a rapidly changing societal and technological landscape. Change has become the new norm. But, in order for change to be positive, both time and resources are essential, not least in rigorously thinking through and defining the questions that need to be asked and in debating and evaluating the art of the possible in overcoming problems and challenges faced. In a country where the power of the police to fulfil their functions and duties is dependent on public approval of their existence, actions and behaviour, and on their ability to secure and maintain public respect, it is equally important that ‘future thinking’ does not lightly discard or forget ‘what works’ as it has developed over the years.
This round table provides a significant opportunity for PCCs, police and representatives from the other emergency services, industry, academia and third sector to come together to discuss questions that are critical in determining what the future of public contact management should look like. It will support the development of the new strategy for public contact management, which is currently under development and being consulted on across policing.
