On behalf of the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction programme, led by South Yorkshire Police on behalf of all forces, last week problem solving subject matter expert, Professor Stuart Kirby, hosted a flipped classroom event for the College of Policing’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) fortnight.

During the interactive session, Professor Kirby provided an overview of the theory of problem solving and the six benefits that can be sought from using Problem-Oriented Policing (POP).

The audience then had the opportunity to ask questions on how to embed problem solving into future ways of working and the skills required to incorporate POP into their continuing professional development.

These questions included the importance of evaluation in the SARA (Scanning, Analysis, Response, Assessment) model and the comparisons between Problem-Oriented Policing and evidence-based policing.

If you weren’t able to join the event, or want to recap on the information Professor Kirby spoke about, you can download and watch the video on either the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction Knowledge Hub page here, or the College of Policing’s dedicated CPD Knowledge Hub page.

This interactive event was just one of the resources created by our programme to support and contribute to the annual CPD event, in order to assist in embedding problem solving and to contribute to reducing demand across police forces and our partners.

These resources included a video of Programme Lead, Superintendent Colin McFarlane, summarising on the different project work streams and the Problem Solving and Demand Reduction Knowledge Hub page- the interactive online repository of good problem solving practice.
