Holyrood’s Digital Justice Scotland 2018 Conference gives delegates a rare opportunity to develop a clear strategic understanding of how to utilise the benefits of innovative technology by sharing examples of best practice in high energy, fully interactive sessions.
Mental Health continues to constitute one of the top priorities in UK policing: as the Mental Health Act 1983 is under review and inquiries continue to report that more work is needed by both police services and partner agencies to improve responses and prevent unnecessary criminalisation of vulnerable people, the lack of accurate data and demand analysis undermines efforts to precisely understand the complex dynamics at play.
The Third National Conference on Mental Health and Policing will examine how we can improve our understanding of demand, including the non-obvious kinds of demand and will aim to demonstrate the need for greater and more accurate data collection, in particular to understand how diversity affects different demographic groups whilst vulnerable in contact with the police.
This year the UK Association of Forensic Nurses and Paramedics (UKAFN) conference will focus upon Adverse Childhood Experiences. Adverse Childhood Experiences are not only very important for Nurses and Paramedics working in Police Custody and Sexual Assault Referral Centres, but their understanding is essential for all those working with individuals within the Criminal Justice System.
