Cohesion Seminar

by msecadm4921

Community cohesion – tackling anti-social behaviour and creating safer communities is the title of a Westminster Legal Policy Forum Keynote Seminar.

Invited speakers include Baroness Newlove of Warrington, a Government champion for active and safer communities; and Sir Denis O’Connor, Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary. The event will run on the morning of January 26, 2011, in central London.

This seminar say organisers will offer an opportunity to consider the key issues affecting communities and neighbourhoods, and the next steps in tackling anti-social behaviour and crime.

Sessions will look at the Government framework for cutting crime, how communities can be better engaged in community safety and how the cycle of crime can be tackled through early intervention. The seminar will also look at the Government’s proposed police reforms, including proposals to give greater freedom to police forces and measures to improve accountability through the establishment of directly elected police commissioners.

Planned sessions will examine:
21st century policing – improving public confidence and the next steps for reform;
Community cohesion: the challenges for the Big Society in meeting its key aim of empowering and engaging local communities; the role schools should play in promoting community cohesion and how the role of the third sector in this area is likely to develop; and
Tackling anti-social behaviour: the key challenges in creating effective multi-agency teams to combat crime and anti-social behaviour, how early intervention can assist in the fight against crime and how alcohol-fuelled violence and gun crime should be tackled.

Other confirmed speakers include Professor Ted Cantle, Executive Chair, Institute of Community Cohesion; Dr Barbara Cole, Programme Leader and Senior Lecturer, Inclusive Education, Institute of Education, University of London; Annabelle Phillips, Head of Crime and Justice Research, Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute and Peter Smyth, Chair, Metropolitan Police Federation.
