After this week’s exciting trip to Scotland, I’m venturing slightly less far north a couple of weeks afterwards, to Lancaster.
It’s for the ‘Digital networking and community safety partnerships conference’, taking place at the town hall in Lancaster on 16th February. It’s a joint LGID and NPIA event, and features really interesting discussions about how digital engagement can be used to make partnership working more effective, and to actually help change behaviour.
I’ll do a quick introduction to the subject at the beginning of the day, and will hang around to answer questions and help out where I can.
Here’s the blurb from the site:
Bringing together the worlds of community safety and digital networking, this free one-day event organised by LG Improvement and Development, the National Policing Improvement Agency and Lancaster City Council aims to provide an overview of social networking, social media and digital networking, their use generally and how they are being used within community safety and policing.
The event will include sessions on:
- the policy landscape for digital engagement in community safety
- what digital engagement is and how to use it
- community use of digital engagement.
If you are interested in attending this free event, just email Rachel Duke by 9th Feb.
Incidentally, I’m probably going to be driving up to Lancaster on the 15th. If you’re on my route, let me know and maybe we can arrange a meet up at a motorway service station, or perhaps something less seedy.
