NPCC are looking for case studies of Police Staff that we can celebrate in week commencing 4th March – Please let me know if you would like to be considered for highlighting – it is an opportunity to showcase volunteering for CPA on top of the blessing of serving in policing as a member of police staff.
Hope you’re well.
My name is Tom Keating and I work in the comms team at the National Police Chiefs’ Council.
To put on your radar, if you’re not already aware: on the week commencing Monday 4 March, the inaugural Police Staff Week of Celebration and Recognition will take place.
If you aren’t aware, here is a brief bit of background:
Senior colleagues want this week to be about recognising the pivotal contribution made to policing by police staff, and also increase the understanding of their work across the policing landscape. This is considered especially important, given the recent focus on front line officers via the Uplift programme, continued staff vacancies and the need to recognise the increasing and continued pressure on budgets impacting on staff and making them feel increasingly vulnerable.
It is hoped that this week will promote and acknowledge the unique and vital role staff play in delivering the policing mission and support further inclusion. Raising the profile of the breadth of police staff work among the public, in light of key vacancies, is essential to increasing the interest and quality of application in publicised roles.
Request for case studies
During the week itself, we will be using social media to highlight case studies and celebrate staff.
As such, would you be able to think about any police staff within the Christian Police Association that could feature as a case study? Would you be able to share this message across the group for any possible candidates, please?
There remains no strict criteria for the submissions – we’ve purposely tried to keep things very open given that this is the first time that the week has been run. We also wouldn’t want to box people into a certain way of thinking about it as we know everyone will have their own views as to who we should be profiling, which is great as we’re looking for a breadth of roles here, ideally.
The most important consideration really is that they’d be happy to talk to us and take part.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
