Our past delegates say it best…….

Vaughan Lukey, Chief Superintendent at Kent Police: Horizons Delegate 2023

“Policing Horizons is an excellent opportunity to enhance how you think and lead. Whether you are seeking to progress in terms of promotion, or more laterally across your organisation, or simply to become a more effective leader in your role, this programme will provide you with the tools and support you need to be successful.The insight that you will gain, from the highest quality speakers, coupled with the cohort of colleagues you will be surrounded by, is invaluable”.

Trudi Meyrick, T/Assistant Chief Constable at South Wales Police: Delegate 2023

I highly recommend the Horizons Senior Police Leadership Executive Programme for its exceptional leadership development opportunities. The programme focused on enhancing leadership skills and strategic thinking abilities, covering important topics such as ethical leadership, crisis management and effective decision-making in high-pressure situations. Throughout the programme, participants were provided with valuable tools and strategies that allowed for reflection on managing diverse teams, fostering inclusive leadership, talent development, and promoting a culture of accountability and professionalism.Participating in the Senior Police Leadership Executive Programme not only provided me with insights into best practices and implicit leadership from subject matter experts, but it further offered the invaluable opportunity to network and collaborate with other senior police leaders from across the country. These interactions facilitated the exchange of ideas, experiences, and strategies for addressing common policing challenges, leading to the formation of lasting friendships and connections.

One personal highlight of the programme was the chance to put myself in uncomfortable situations, such as presenting and briefing senior leaders, internal and external stakeholders. This experience allowed me to learn and grow from situations that didn’t always go as planned, strengthening my individual learning and development enhancing resilience and adaptability. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the next programme starting in April. The brochure confirming dates and the booking form can be accessed through our website under the programmes tab.

South Wales and Gwent Police Middle Managers Leadership Development Programme Starts on the 21st February 2024

Bruck Payne Associates are delighted to confirm that the South Wales and Gwent Police Middle Managers Leadership Development Programme starts on the 21st February with 20 Inspectors and Police Staff joining the programme.





Confronting and overcoming the challenges of 2024 and beyond

The development of our talented police and police staff is an imperative in supporting the complex and fast-moving pace of modern policing in the UK. New forms of crime, advanced technologies, and evolving relationships with communities are shifting the very foundations of police work.

Traditional organisations are struggling to adapt to the demands of a new world that has rapidly changed around them. The police challenge going forward will be to merge technology with the human element. There is arguably a need for middle manager police officers and staff to have more knowledge and experience of budgetary management, human resources, team building, resilience, wellbeing and collaboration.

Our programme has been designed to cover both management and leadership development in line with the level of Inspector or equivalent member of Police Staff. To cover the role of a leader of large teams of sergeants, constables and police staff, with responsibility for the delivery of a range of diverse policing services whilst ensuring organisational standards are upheld.

Looking forward to starting work with these talented individuals next week.
