PCP Seventh National Conference
We have just under a week to go before our next conference for PCPs on Monday 12 November 2018, at Scarman House, Warwick Conference Centre; and we are looking forward to seeing our PCP colleagues and guests.
We wish to thank our main sponsor, Grant Thornton, for their ongoing support for the project and to ADSO (Association of Democratic Services Officers) for sponsoring the workshops.
We have an exciting programme this year and are pleased to announce that the plenary session will be chaired by Councillor Rob Garnham, Gloucestershire Police and Crime Panel. Rob will be joined by Sara Thornton, Chair of the National Police Chief's Council and Mark Burns-Williamson, Chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commisioners, which should make for a very interesting debate. The theme for the plenary is priorities and pressures; working together. There will be an opportunity for questions and contributions from conference.
We are also pleased to be able to include the National Assocaition of Police (Fire) and Crime Panels AGM, into the programme. Whilst this is running we have a series of networking forums and drop in sessions:
