RGP officers attend UK conference to combat Violence Against Women and Girls

Two RGP officers have just returned from a national two-day conference on Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) which was held in the College of Policing at Ryton-on-Dunsmore in UK. 

Chief Insp (Des) Dylan Quigley and Police Sergeant Joanna Ullger joined over 200 representatives from every police force in England and Wales. Also attending the conference were officers from Cyprus, Bermuda and the Falkland Islands. 

The aim of the conference was to improve internal culture and conduct and to share best practice and standards. 

Amongst the speakers were Chief Constable Andy Marsh, Chief Executive Officer at the College of Policing, Deputy Chief Constable Maggie Blyth, National Police Chiefs Lead for VAWG, Nicole Jacobs, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales and Chief Constable Gavin Stephens, Surrey Police and National Police Chiefs’ Chair. 

Chief Inspector Quigley said, 

‘This was an excellent conference.  

‘It demonstrated how VAWG is near the top of every police force’s agenda and it gave us plenty of things to think about in terms of our own policies and best practice. 

‘Notwithstanding all today’s many demands on policing, the RGP remains committed to protecting the women and girls in our community.’
