Police Now Annual Impact Conference 2018

Police Now Annual Impact Conference 2018

Police Now’s second annual Impact Conference brought over 1,000 police officers and supporters together to celebrate Police Now’s impact within and across some of the country’s most deprived communities. The event was hosted at Chelsea Football Club, with the support of the Premier League.


Opening the day, Police Now participant PC Tamsin Ireland shared her experiences and advice for those just starting the programme. In the afternoon, attendees heard from Police Now CEO David Spencer, who praised officers for their ongoing hard work and urged those in policing to continue reforming at pace. This was followed by a panel discussion chaired by PC Katie Gibson, with MPS Commissioner Cressida Dick CBE QPM, Unlocked Graduates CEO Natasha Porter and reformed gang member and youth-worker Jason Allen.

MPS Commissioner Cressida Dick CBE QPM congratulates Police Now and all of its supporters on their achievements to date.

In the evening, NPCC Chair Sara Thornton CME QPM addressed those graduating from the programme and their families, sharing experiences from across her career in policing.

The event also saw the launch of Police Now’s Impact Library.  This is an interactive tool to support problem solving that has been created by frontline police officers, for frontline police officers. If you have a or email address you can now register for access here.
