Northgate Information Solutions and the British Association for Women in Policing (BAWP) have today signed a two-year agreement which will see Northgate become headline sponsors of the National Conference for Senior Women in Policing.
The deal was signed today at Cambridgeshire Constabulary by Julie Spence OBE, Chief Constable and BAWP President, and Ian Churchill, Managing Director of Criminal Justice and Public Safety at Northgate Information Solutions.
BAWP was formed in 1987 with the aim of raising awareness of the issues affecting women within the police service, and now provides a support infrastructure to female operational and support staff throughout the UK. The next conference is taking place from 28th February to 2nd March 2007 at the NEC in Birmingham and will address the key issues facing women in senior positions across local and national forces.
Speaking today, Julie Spence, Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary and President of BAWP, said:
“I am delighted to sign this agreement with Northgate today. It is clear from their work that they share our commitment to diversity and to positively addressing gender issues across the police service. Their experience in working with police forces across the country gives them significant insight into the work that we do, and we look to developing a mutually beneficial partnership going forwards.”
Ian Churchill, Managing Director of Criminal Justice and Public Safety at Northgate Information Solutions, added:
“Ensuring that issues of diversity and gender are adequately understood and promoted is essential to modern policing and to building public trust in the service. We are delighted to be supporting the Senior Women in Policing National Conference, and to working with BAWP in the pursuit of their goal.”
