Paddy Tipping speaking to attendees at the event
Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Paddy Tipping, attended a British Academy of Management event yesterday (29 Jan) at the Nottingham Conference Centre.
Mr Tipping was asked to attend to explain to country-wide audience of university-based representatives how he had found the first two of months in office - and the main differences between Police and Crime Commissioners and the former Police Authorities.
Mr Tipping told the attendees: “I have tried to hit the ground running. I have developed my Draft Police and Crime Plan which is currently out for consultation; I have been looking at performance targets; and I have been focusing on how we can better measure the Criminal Justice System. I want a better deal for victims and witnesses – so I will be working further on this too.
“I have to focus on the main things we want to achieve and remember that it can not all happen over night. I am working hard to build relationships with the public, the police and other partners so that I can ensure positive changes will take place moving forward.”
Attendees at the event included representatives from the Nottingham Business School, Liverpool Hope University, Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and the Warwick Business School.
