    47th annual general meeting

    President’s Introduction It is with great pleasure that I welcome all members and guests to this year’s main event of the ABI calendar in

    Birmingham. Although I had held the Vice President post for several years I would never have guessed a year ago that I would end the

    2016-2017 term as President and as President elect for the next year. It has been a turbulent few months but the ship has steadied and with a strong team in the Governing Council we stand united in taking the Association forward and tackling the tasks and goals we have set ourselves to improve the organisation and it’s members’ position and professional standing. The General Meeting wi l l c l ea r a l l outstanding i s sues , focus the membership on the way forward and enable the board to demonst ra te and explain their ambitions for the foreseeable future. I wish all delegates an enjoyable and successful event.

    Mark Hodgson [President]

    Chairman’ s Welcome Note When I accepted the board’s appointment as Chairman to fill the position made vacant following my predecessor’s appointment as head of the Secretariat in September, l i t t l e d id I know how chal lenging the first few months wou ld be . As a Governing Council we have had a great deal to contend

    with in recent times, however as a team we have worked extremely hard to overcome issues and move forward on a pos i t i ve footing in the best interests of the Association and its members. The position of Chairman is one that is selected by the board immediately following the AGM, and so at the time of writing I am unaware of who will be chairing the Association for the following year. With a strong mature membership in support, the Governing Council enters into the new financial year focussed on its objectives and confident with its wider business plan. I am certain the Chairman’s position will be both challenging and rewarding.

    For me, Annual General Meetings have always combined business with pleasure and I’ve been attending since before I was old enough to become a member – that’s a long time believe me... The Association is nothing without its members and their participation in its events. I hope this year’s meeting proves to be an enjoyable and successful event for all who attend, and look forward to seeing old and new friends in Birmingham next month.   Darren Shelmerdine [Chairman]

    Michael Barton

 Chief Constable 
 Durham Constabulary

    Michael is a proud Lancastrian and adopted North Easterner who served in Lancashire Constabulary for 28 year s be fore joining Durham Constabulary in 2008 a s Ass i s tant Chie f Constable. He has been Chief Constable since 2012.

    Michael has led new ways of tackling organised criminals with local beat officers and PCSOs through challenging traditional ways of policing and encouraging paradigm shifts. Durham is now recognised as a leading force in tackling serious and organised crime as well as managing offenders. A glance at the most recent HMIC PEEL inspection will show a police force at the top of its game wi th an env iab le s l e w of outstanding grades. He attributes this to inspired and positive staff that have their feet on the ground and a burning desire to look after victims of crime and anti- social behaviour. The most often repeated phrase of visitors to Durham Constabulary is ‘it feels different here!’

    He has long been a keen exponent of problem-orientated policing and integrated offender management, including restorative justice, and has successfully embedded these concepts in Lancashire and Durham.

    Michael is the National Policing Lead for Crime and intends to use this position to ensure British Policing is in the vanguard of tackling crime on the internet.

    He has attracted a degree of media attention through his advocacy for a ‘grown up’ debate on drugs – challenging the efficacy of outright prohibition.

    Michael at his worst has been described as a maverick and at his best as a maverick. He has enjoyed a few scrapes and still pinches himself every morning that someone asked him to be a Chief Constable.
