A hand raised in the air

With Stephen Kavanagh, Chief Constable of Essex Police

Essex Police has a longstanding and deep collaboration with Kent police, and both forces are part of the eastern region’s Seven Force Strategic Collaboration programme.

This pilot programme represents the biggest collaboration of police forces in the UK, bringing together the forces of Bedfordshire Police, Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Essex Police, Hertfordshire Constabulary, Kent Police, Norfolk Constabulary and Suffolk Constabulary to maximise joint working as a model for collaborative working in future.

“The challenges of rising demand and falling budgets are so serious that they cannot be solved by individual forces acting alone. If we do not find ways of making what we do more efficient and effective our prospects are grave.”
Stephen Kavanagh, Chief Constable of Essex Police

As part of PIER’s Public Lecture Series, the Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh will explore both the ambition of this collaboration and the challenges that will inevitably arise.
