16th Annual EIP Conference

Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd September 2016
College of Policing Conference Centre, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Coventry

“Current and future expectations”

Policing has never been so complex or demanding and with the pace of change showing no signs of abating it is not surprising that many people are unsure what is expected of the service, or its workforce, or them. This year’s conference considered what is expected of and by the police.

As the title suggests, the conference explored what is expected of and by the police and how these expectations are going to be met. Building on the insights from two highly successful one day events held earlier this year, the conference drew on the knowledge and experience of subject matter experts from within and outside policing. It advanced the continuing debate about how the police should be organised and equipped to meet the plethora of diversifying expectations. EIP16 focused on four main themes:

• Expectations: what are they and where do they come from?;
• Expectations: equipping the organisation to meet them;
• Expectations: working differently; and
• Expectations: ensuring they are met.
