Following the launch of the National Police/Health Consensus supported by the College of Policing Public Health principles, development of the Violence Reduction Units, and numerous discussion papers, there is a national policing and public health appetite for sharing practice, information, innovation and ideas.
The appetite is equally applicable across the four nations of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, and this series of interactive webinars will provide a platform for sharing learning, inspire and equip practitioners and raising awareness of how whole system public health approaches support proactive preventative approaches to policing.
With some 15 individual webinars over the week, the series will have a strong focus on learning from practice that is currently being tried, tested, and delivered across the four nations.
Key areas to be covered include:
- An introduction to public health approaches – What is it and how will it benefit my working practice?
- Crisis response utilising public health approaches
- Whole system public health approaches
- Early intervention and prevention
- Trauma informed practice
The webinar series is free to access and will provide a unique opportunity for online discussion and debate. Each session will be accompanied by CPD accreditation.
The sessions have been structured to benefit a variety of multi-agency sectors, including law enforcement and public health practitioners, policymakers and researchers from public health teams, response policing professionals and leaders, Violence Reduction Units, multi-agency system leaders, future/horizon scanners, and early intervention/prevention specialists
