Plenary 1: Police Reform
The communities we serve are increasingly diverse and complex, necessitating a more sophisticated policing response. With increasing and evolving threats such as child sexual exploitation, cybercrime and serious organised crime set against a background of limited police spending, the decisions made by police leadership around the use of valuable resources are more critical than ever.

This session will consider the progress being made in respect of the Policing Vision 2025 in its ambition to make transformative change across the system. Contributions from service experts will focus on specific reforms such as that relating to workforce and technology in considering whether we have a service fit to tackle 21st century threats, and embrace new opportunities.

Plenary 3: Funding and Finance
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.
