Challenging British Police Service myths
28 January 2011
Andy Fisher, retired Superintendent from Merseyside Police will be delivering a lecture on 7th February challenging the myth that Sir Robert Peel created the British Police Service
The lecture titled: ‘The more that things change – the more they stay the same’, will see Andy discuss his view that ‘although Peel is revered as the politician who created the British Police Force, he almost caused the collapse of policing as we know it today.’
This is an open invitation for an informative talk on this issue, for students, staff and members of the public.
Mr. Fisher introduced a number of creative and innovative working practices to his department that resulted in them winning numerous national awards including the National Customer Services Award for two consecutive years (2007 and 2008). His work also led to National Justice Awards for his department’s work in breaking down barriers between the criminal justice agencies and diverse communities of Merseyside.
He currently consults for a number of organisations and departments in the UK and United States and serves as a seminar tutor for two criminology bachelor classes at Lancaster University. Mr. Fisher attained a first class honours degree in Police Leadership and Management and is in the final year of a doctorate at London Metropolitan University. His thesis relates to the role of leadership in changing cultures and his presentation will relate to part of his Doctorate.
The lecture will take place in G01 in the John Foster Building commencing at 3.15pm Monday 7th February.
