Restoring Public Confidence in UK Policing

calendarclock - (BST)

A conversation with Assistant Commissioner Louisa Rolfe, exploring how public confidence in UK policing can be restored.

Trust in the police has been severely affected by events such as the murder of Sarah Everard by police officer Wayne Couzens, as well as the Stephen Port case, where police shortcomings failed to prevent the murder of some victims. A recent Independent Office for Police Conduct report has also highlighted incidents of misogyny, discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment in the Metropolitan Police.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Assistant Commissioner Rolfe will discuss some of the strategies and campaigns that are now in place to restore public confidence in UK policing.

The webinar will be moderated by Keith Ditcham, Acting Director, Organised Crime and Policing, RUSI.


Louisa Rolfe OBE was appointed Assistant Commissioner for Operations in the Metropolitan Police Service in September 2020. She previously served as Deputy Chief Constable of West Midlands Police, where she oversaw the force’s 2020 change programme.
