"Policing Matters – The Road to Recovery after the Riots"
Where last summer’s riots began, so too must the debate about the future of policing.
At Tottenham's Bernie Grant Arts Centre, David Gilbertson QPM, formerly one of Scotland Yard’s most senior officers, delivers a public talk on the crisis in modern policing.
From ‘bobbies on beats’ to ‘Stop and Search’, he argues that, over the last decade, the police have become increasingly alienated from the public they serve. How can trust with the community be regained?
His powerful account of a crisis offers a way forward to police, policy makers and the community.
A panel discussion and audience debate will follow, chaired by Rt. Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee.
David Gilbertson is a former Deputy Assistant Commissioner to the Metropolitan Police and HM Assistant Inspector of Constabulary. He is the author of ‘The Strange Death of Constable George Dixon – Why the Police have Stopped Policing,’ a critique of the current state of policing in Britain.
The lecture is held in memory of MP Bernie Grant, in particular his ground-breaking campaigning for ethnicity monitoring in stop and search.
The Bernie Grant Trust is a registered charity No. 1021451.
