John Harris Memorial Lecture

Since 1983 the Police Foundation’s Annual Lecture has provided a space for major public figures to reflect on the challenges facing policing today. To acknowledge the unique contribution of Lord Harris of Greenwich, the founder of the Police Foundation, the Lecture was renamed following his death in April 2001 as the ‘John Harris Memorial Lecture’.

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick will be giving the 2019 John Harris Memorial Lecture which marks the 40th anniversary of the Police Foundation. The event will take place on the evening of 25th June.

This event is invite-only. If you would like to request an invitation to the Lecture please contact
