Partnerships in Action is the theme of this year’s conference being held by Roger Hirst, the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex.
The event, now in its fourth year, is being held at Boreham House in Main Road, Boreham, on Thursday 15th March.
James Cleverly MP will be the keynote speaker in the morning and Jo Turton, who will become Chief Fire Officer/Chief Executive of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service in April, will be talking about the importance of collaboration in the afternoon.
A new addition for this year will be a series of lightning talks from a range of groups and individuals working in the community. They will showcase how partnerships can work in action to solve community safety issues. There will also be solution finding workshops focusing on gangs, volunteering, collaboration and working effectively with community organisations as well as a question and answer session with a panel of experts including Roger Hirst, Deputy Chief Constable BJ Harrington, Adam Eckley, the Chief Fire Officer of ECFRS, Karl Edwards, Deputy Director of Service Delivery, East of England Ambulance Service and Lorraine Jarvis, the Chief Officer of Chelmsford CVS – Centre Supporting Voluntary Action.
Roger Hirst said: “For me, safe and secure communities are the bedrock on which we build wellbeing and prosperity for all. It will be great to hear from all of our partners on how we are working together to make Essex a safer place for all who live, work or visit our amazing county.”
Mr Hirst will also be announcing the winner of this year’s Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner’s Community Safety Award at the conference. People can find out more details about the award and vote for the People’s Choice winner on the PFCC website http://www.essex.pfcc.police.uk/
