This annual event has just come to a close in Leicestershire. Originally intended for serving police officers, the conference is now attended by many professionals both from the statutory agencies and third sector. Kim attended in her capacity as a member of the national safeguarding panel in sport.
Kim was initially invited to attend as a guest but was then asked to sit as a panel member advising the audience on the disclosure of information. It was a lively session and threw up the confusion that surrounds disclosure for all professionals involved in this area of work.
The conference was also given an update on the Jimmy Saville enquiry by the officer who has been leading the investigation. He also spoke about the increase in the the number of historic disclosures reported to the police since the Jimmy Saville enquiry began in October. It was clear that support for these victims who had chosen to speak out was a key priority for the police.
