Welcome from Martin Hewitt and Marc Jones

The NPCC and APCC Chairs each give a short speech outlining the key issues for policing and the main themes for the Summit - Cutting Crime and Building Confidence

Session chaired by Clive Myrie


Cutting crime, improving outcomes  

After the dip caused by the pandemic, recorded crime is on the increase and set to rise further. Some types of crime - sexual
offending and fraud - are at record levels. Charging rates, however, are the lowest they’ve been since the data was compiled
this way in 2015.

One 15-minute presentation providing a clear and concise outline of the evidence on crime levels, charging rates, police officer
numbers, policing demand, victim satisfaction and confidence - and projections.

Clive Myrie will then chair a focused discussion on ways to increase charging rates, bolster confidence in alternatives to
prosecution - and improve outcomes for victims:

Police culture, public confidence

Trust in policing has been damaged by a series of events that have raised serious concerns about the culture of the service. What can chief constables and police and crime commissioners do to root out misogyny, homophobia and racism in the ranks? Does the police misconduct system need overhauling? Confidence in policing is said to be affected by visibility in communities and the way officers respond to incidents. If so, is this the key to building public confidence?

Each panellist will speak for 5 to 7 minutes, before a discussion and questions.

Chaired by Clive Myrie.

A record 12,000 victims of modern slavery were referred to the Home Office last year. The National Crime Agency estimates around 8,000 offenders in the UK are involved in the exploitation of people. But are police equipped to deal with the problem?
The Anti-Slavery Commissioner says forces need to develop their capacity and capability.

Fighting Fraudsters

Fraud and computer misuse are the most common and fastest-growing crime types in England and Wales with an estimated 7 million offences last year. Yet the capacity and capability of law enforcement to tackle the problem is limited. So what more can be done within existing resources?

Are structural changes required? What role can industry play?


Refreshment break


Breakouts: Panel discussions with key figures from policing, criminal justice and the private sector. Discussions take place in different rooms, looking in depth at key issues:

Churchill Room: Policing protests
Police have been granted greater powers to deal with ‘non-violent’ protests - and proposed new legislation will extend the measures further. How will officers balance people’s right to protest with the need to prevent serious disruption to communities and businesses? Will the powers spark conflict between officers and demonstrators? What has been the experience so far?

KBRGielgud Room: Violence against Women and Girls - sponsored by KBR
The NPCC has a new framework to tackle violence against women and girls and five forces are deploying a new approach to rape cases, Operation Soteria. Is there tangible progress - and what further changes are needed?

Burton & Redgrave Room: It’s Anti-Social
One in four adults across England and Wales experienced or witnessed anti-social behaviour last year - but are the tools and powers available to police sufficient to deal with the problem? What community projects have achieved success?
