Chief Constable's lecture

Community Event

Redmonds Building, Brownlow Hill, L3 5UG
19th November 2018 17:30 - 18:30

Merseyside's Police Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner will attend a lecture by the Chief Constable, Andy Cooke, as he examines the issue of fairness and equality in policing.

Jane Kennedy and Cllr Emily Spurrell are among the invited guests at the lecture which is hosted by Liverpool John Moores University.

The university started hosting the annual Chief Constable Lecture series in 2013. Each year, the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police gives a public lecture covering a key topic which reflects on the current or emerging challenges facing law enforcement.

This year’s lecture is entitled, ‘Policing Should Be Fair and Equal for All – So why isn’t it?where Chief Constable Cooke will consider the question of whether policing is fair and equal in its provision and in the protection it affords.  He will also consider the underlying factors affecting this.

Chief Constable Cooke gave his inaugural lecture, entitled: 'Lions led by donkeys?: a personal perspective on the reality of police leadership', in November 2016.

Previous lectures given by the former Chief Constable, Sir Jon Murphy QPM, included community policing, surveillance and a state of the nation. The lecture is organised by the Centre for Advanced Policing Studies, which works closely with police forces in the UK and overseas and the College of Policing, to support the sector to meet the needs of 21st century policing.

Mr Cooke was appointed as Chief Constable in July 2016, following Sir Jon's retirement.

He has been commended on 10 occasions and in Her Majesty’s Birthday Honours in 2014 he was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal.
