Conference: Partnering with Police to Reduce Business Crime, Leeds
Date: 26 Mar 2014
Venue: Central Leeds
Partnering with the Police to reduce business crime.
PAC’s Midland and the North regional conference is being held in Leeds on March 26th. This day-long conference shows how close interworking between police and Partnerships really has worked – and why. The emphasis is squarely on real-life experience and practical lessons. Conference tickets are £55.
Business crime reduction partnerships are highly effective in reducing crime among retailers and the night-time economy in town and city-centres. But successful interaction with police doesn’t always come easily. Good partnership-working depends on a healthy balance between sometimes-conflicting interests. A good Partnership isn’t simply an extension of the police’s community policing activies. Likewise the Partnership must be sure to work with instead of against its local constabulary. But where is the ‘healthy balance’, and how can the inevitable tensions that arise be addressed and resolved? The emphasis of Partnering with the Police to Reduce Business Crime is squarely on real-life experience and practical lessons.
Delegates are welcomed to morning registration with tea and coffee from 9.30 with procedings starting at 10.00am. Ample opportunities will be available for networking and informal discussions with fellow delegates, speakers and exhibitors: coffee and tea breaks with biscuits will be taken, and a luncheon will be served at 13.00.
