Our third annual conference explored the crucial role of community engagement in the context of the challenges and opportunities the police currently face, including the introduction of Police and Crime Commissioners, an increased emphasis on local accountability, the rapid rise of social media and the pressure to meet the public’s expectations in an increasingly consumer-oriented society.
