Cambridgeshire Police Federation members are being urged to sign up for a conference highlighting the latest advances and practice in roads policing.

The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) Roads Policing Conference 2021, a virtual event, is open to Federation members and workplace representatives for the first time - and organisers are keen to get as many as possible to take part.

Run along similar lines to this year’s successful annual conference, members who register but cannot make the event will be able to catch up via a special on-demand service,  available for 30 days after the Wednesday 29 September event.

Cambridgeshire branch chair Liz Groom said: “I would encourage members to attend the Roads Policing Conference. It provides a valuable opportunity to meet up, share experiences with colleagues and discuss best practice going forward.

“Policing is going through a tough, challenging time and roads policing is no exception, so there will be a lot of interesting discussions and workshops to take part in and lots of new information to come away with.”

The agenda features keynote speeches from national Police Federation representatives and officials, panel discussions and Q & As on critical areas of focus for roads policing, continuing professional development certified sessions on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and a live operational roads policing exercise.

The winner of the PFEW Outstanding Contribution to Roads Policing Award will also be announced during the conference.

The event will again be hosted by talkRADIO presenter Ian Collins and will feature addresses from national chair John Apter, national roads policing lead Gemma Fox, policing minister Kit Malthouse and shadow policing minister Sarah Jones.
