Plenary 1: Police Reform
The world which we are policing is changing - and it is sometimes said that change will never be as slow as it is now! The public expect the police to continue with the core mission - responding to emergencies, investigating crime and neighbourhood policing - but they also expect an effective response to serious organised crime and online crime, a focus on crimes which target the most vulnerable and a determined response to a range of terrorist threats. This changing context requires us to be constantly forming and reforming, changing and reshaping. Police reform is not a criticism of the service but a way to ensure that everything we do is relevant and meets the needs of the public as best we can given the limited resources that we have.

Plenary 3: Police Funding
Next year the Government will carry out a departmental spending review and it is critical that policing makes a robust, evidence-based, case for resourcing the service.
This session will provide delegates with an insight into the focus of the spending review submission and how we have come together across law enforcement to deliver the piece. We will explore the objectives of this work and our key narrative around demand and resilience, capability and efficiency & productivity. We will also look for delegates to provide a further steer on how we can reduce demand across law enforcement, how partners can assist in this, and how we can we can increase productivity.
