Police and Peace

As part of my role as business advisor to the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace, I sat in one of their training sessions for the Merseyside Police. The workshop was for Family Liaison Officers and Emergency Call takers. The aim was to help them to deal with critical incidents.

Trevor, who had lost his son in the bombing of Sharm-el-Sheik talked about his experience, his disappointments in the way he had been treated and his suggestions for clearer communication in the future.  The participants all discussed his views in the light of their own experiences.

Jo Dover ran the session with great sensitivity. I was also left with great admiration for the police officers and volunteers who provide this vital role. To find out more about the work of the Foundation for Peace or to enquire about a workshop go to their website.
