People in Policing – moving to policing as a profession

This important and timely discussion ‘People in Policing – moving to policing as a profession’ has been convened by Cityforum in consultation with the College of Policing, national workforce leads and wider stakeholders. It provides a valuable opportunity for individuals at all ranks and in all sectors of policing, as well as those from the private sector, officialdom and academia, to have a voice in examining the national proposals for the development of policing ‘as a profession’ and to discuss how policing will need to change in order to secure quality people in the coming decade.

An impressive agenda is chaired by Chief Constable Giles York, the College of Policing’s Professional Community Chair for Professional Development and Integrity and the National Lead for Workforce Futures. The opening session looks at what is actually meant by ‘a profession’ and includes keynotes by Mr Mike Cunningham the new CEO College of Policing and Dame Donna Kinnair Director of Nursing, Policy and Practice Royal College of Nursing, who will give a candid, forthright appraisal of the consequences of ‘professionalism’ in nursing, a comparable public sector.

The day follows with an examination of what a ‘professional’ police force will look like and how policing will be delivered and by whom. Ms Dee Collins Chief Constable West Yorkshire Police openings the session with her reflections, as a Chief, of the challenges ahead, in a discussion that looks at the purposes and aims of The Policing Education Qualifications Framework (PEQF) and what has to change in order that policing has access to the full range of people, skills and capabilities that will be required to keep the public safe.

A final session focussing on avoiding the potential obstacles to success culminates in a concluding speech from the Chair of the day on what will need to happen now and what outside assistance will need to be sought, in order to ensure ‘professionalising’ the police leads to the improvement the tax payer rightly deserves.

Cityforum is keen to see as wide a representation as possible from across policing (from all levels and ranks), the Offices of Police and Crime Commissioners, officialdom, academia and private and Third Sectors. With exception of the keynotes, speeches will be short and each session followed by extended discussion with all those in the room. The whole day will be conducted under the Chatham House Rule, with no press in attendance, to encourage open and frank discussion. We hope you will be able to join us.
