6.00 pm for 6.30 pm start
Working through the CIPD, Hampshire Constabulary are keen to ensure that HR professionals and managers have access to the most up-to-date information and advice about how to tackle the effects of domestic abuse in the workplace.
This session will explore how well managers understand the nature, effect and impact of domestic abuse in the workplace; best practice in responding to allegations of domestic abuse made by members of staff; how to respond to a member of staff who is arrested or convicted of domestic abuse, and how to balance the need to protect staff and keep them safe with the need to maintain confidentiality.
This event is taking place during the '16 days of action' campaign run by the Corporate Alliance and supported by Public Health England.
Leading this session are Chief Inspector Patrick Holdaway, Havant and Waterlooville District Commander and Detective Chief Inspector Tim Rowlandson, Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Harassment Lead from Hampshire Constabulary.
Patrick is a Business Crime Lead at the Constabulary, having joined in 1995. He completed his MBA in 2003 and has worked across the county in a variety of operational and strategic roles. On 6th October 2016, Patrick takes up the role of District Chief Inspector in Havant, following his recent promotion.
For the last three years Tim Rowlandson has chaired the Hampshire Stalking Clinic and has led the Force in developing its action plan in respect of Domestic Abuse. Tim is passionate about protecting vulnerable victims from those who would cause them harm. Until recently he headed-up the Force’s Offender Management department, which brought together officers working on MAPPA, IOM and Youth offending teams for the first time. He also oversaw the creation of an innovative Offender Management Hub, to coordinate information-sharing about offenders across the Force and with partners. Tim is now leading the Western Investigation Team within the Constabulary and is using this opportunity to raise awareness of Domestic Abuse with frontline investigators.
Joining Patrick and Tim in answering your questions will be Shonagh Dillon, CEO of Aurora New Dawn, a Charity that provides support to victims of Domestic Abuse.
