Post incident procedures under the spotlight

17 October 2017

Che Donald

The two-day seminar will draw more than 200 delegates from across policing, including those involved in operational policing and custody.

Hosted by the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) the Post-Incident Procedure (PIP) seminar will feature speakers from across the policing arena, including:

•    Tim Godwin – Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC)
•    Neuropsychologist Dr Jess Miller
•    Gill Scott-Moore, CEO of the Police Dependants’ Trust
•    Det Chief Superintendent Chris Mead and Temp Chief Inspector Julia Hands, from Cambridgeshire Constabulary

They will be welcomed by Deputy Chief Constable Simon Chesterman, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for firearms, appearing via video and will be facilitated by Dave Blocksidge, from Mind Your Evidence, an independent organisation which looks at expert witness testimony and memory training solutions.

Issues discussed will include how to get the most out of the post-incident brain; trauma, spatial processing and genetics; body worn video; and post incident management.

Che Donald, firearms lead for the PFEW, said the seminar – which involves a training element for those in the arena – was vitally important to help aid understanding of the issues at hand. “The seminar is not just about firearms – it is much wider than that and the importance of the PIPs process affects not only firearms officers but all officers involved in the world of operational policing as well as the custody arena, where there are deaths and serious injuries."

The event takes place in Staffordshire.
