Sentinel is a West Midlands Police initiative which aims to raise awareness of hidden crimes in order to better gather intelligence, support victims and tackle perpetrators.
In England and Wales domestic abuse costs £1.9 billion a year in lost economic output. This is due to decreased productivity, administration difficulties from unplanned time off, lost wages and sick pay. Domestic abuse can impact negatively on an employee’s health and wellbeing. It can impact on staff morale as well as organisational image and reputation.
On Thursday 1st December 2016 at Tally Ho, Pershore Road, Birmingham, B5 7RN, West Midlands Police will be hosting a conference to raise awareness of vulnerabilities within the work place.
This conference will help you spot the signs of domestic abuse, stalking and harassment and unwanted sexual contact within the work place and will equip you with the knowledge on how you can best support victims and know your legal obligations.
Please note that this event is not available for the media without prior consent from the West Midlands Police Press Office. They can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration will begin at 0800am for a prompt 9am start. Please note that the conference centre is the building located at the rear of the drive way, as you enter Tally Ho.
