Conference
Working Group 1 Police and Policing in an
ever Changing World
What is the future role of the police given
fundamental shifts in strategic and
operational environments?
 What do stakeholders – political, private
and public - want their police to be?
 What will policing look like like as the
traditional security monopoly erodes?
And, crime and social unrest are rising?

Fragmentation of policing
How do you position yourself in multi agency realities:
do you have strategy?
Are you an observer, or are you assertive, pro active
and a ‘mover and shaker’ in the security arena?
How do you guarantee Public Interest, Democracy and
Core Values in all sorts of Collaboration/Networks and
Partnerships?

The metaphor for this scenario is “Is
there a pilot on the plane?”; an absence
of effective leadership leads to a crash.

Police strategy is designed to sense and
respond to changes in the environment, must
lead to the establishment of new capabilities,
competencies and collaborative networks that
are agile and responsive.
