Agenda finalised for LRSC centenary conference

More than 170 people will attend the conference, ‘Safer Cities, Safer Futures’, to be held at the Guildhall in the City of London on 24 January. Sponsored by RedSpeed International, the conference will explore the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead for road safety professionals working in cities across the UK.

The agenda comprises 15 presentations from 19 speakers – including Leon Daniels (TfL), Keith Prince AM (London Assembly) and Lord Holmes of Richmond MBE – as well as road safety professionals and elected members from across the Capital.

DCS Rickett is the OCU commander of the RTCP, a position he has held since 2015. In a career spanning three decades, Mr Rickett has also been borough commander in both Tower Hamlets and City of Westminster, and worked for Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).
