Log Keeping during a crisis such as COVID19

Overview

As all organisations are making key strategic decisions in response to the current crisis, it is as important as ever that accurate records of those business-changing decisions are made and kept. There will be a need in the near future for decision makers to justify many of their decisions to key stakeholders such as employees, shareholders, customers and the public.

This webinar provides advice on the importance and practicalities of keeping a decision log, along with exploring the psychology of decision-making during emergencies.

Policing the Lockdown, the Perfect Storm and Psychological Perspectives

Overview

Training of Police Officers is going through its biggest change in decades, from a training to an educational perspective, with the Police Education Qualification Framework and partnerships between Higher Education Institutions and Police forces. The Prime Minister recently instructing that an additional 20,000 extra police officers over three years should be employed, which requires the recruitment and education of £53,000 officers over that time frame. Then add to this the matter of a pandemic and the operational and educational consequences within the context of a national lockdown has presented the perfect storm for Policing, the public and Higher Education.
