We are hosting witness seminars at the Devonport Guildhall in association with RIO - Real Ideas Organisation. This event will form part of a month long exhibition, providing real life context for community engagement about everyday offending in Devonport, Plymouth.
The first seminar 'Policing everyday offending in Devonport' (10:00-12:00) will focus on the experiences of dealing with offending and criminal activity in Devonport including testimony from current and retired police officers.
The second seminar 'Community responses to everyday offending' (13:00-15:00) will focus on the experience of those affected by criminal acts and those who were responsible for causing the offence.
Witness seminars comprise a panel of witnesses who provide brief introductions, comment on their professional role, and their understanding of the topic and its relevance. They are asked questions to initiate a discussion highlighting different perspectives and experiences. The audience are invited to comment and ask further questions.
This event is open to all and there is a one hour lunch break between the seminars.
