POA Circulars

47 | 10.06.2015

2nd NATIONAL NEW PSYCHOACTIVE CONFERENCE PARK INN RADISSON, NORTHAMPTON

The POA has been invited to speak at the above event and Mike Rolfe of the NEC will be addressing the Conference on behalf of the Union.

The Conference is on behalf of Solve It and the Angelus Foundation, two charities that work to educate and raise awareness of the dangers posed by the use of such substances. POA members are well aware of the problems that these substances pose in our prisons and this Conference may prove beneficial to local committees and management.

The Executive have agreed to promote the Conference and we would urge local committees to approach management to fund and facilitate attendance. As you know NOMS is currently working on a national policy to deal with these issues, but until such time as a national policy is in place, local management need to put in place procedures to protect staff and prisoners alike.

Please find attached a booking form and flyer for your information.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours sincerely


STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
