Policing the community conference and Howard League Community Awards 2018 was held on Wednesday 14 November 2018
at the King’s Fund, 11–13 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0AN
The Howard League for Penal Reform remains concerned that too many people are being brought into conflict with the criminal justice system and the problematic implications this has for their future lives.
This one day conference provided an opportunity for delegates to explore best practice in policing and diversion from crime and custody. The conference explored innovations in policy and practice in relation to child arrests and ‘looked after’ children, policing and adults, and race and the criminal justice system.
The conference also included the Community Awards 2018, recognising the country’s most successful community projects encouraging desistance from crime.
