COMPOSITE End User Board Meeting in Durham, United Kingdom

2012-06-12 12:34

At this year’s first End User Board meeting held in Durham on June 12, senior police officers from the participating countries discussed the next steps of COMPOSITE research. In the picturesque and reverent setting of Durham’s Usher College, the expertise of End User Board members on procedures and questionnaires for Action Line II was in demand. Beforehand, key results of Action Line I were presented to the End User Board members by Les Graham (work packages 2 leader), Kamal Birdi (work packages 3 leader) and Sebastian Denef (work package 4 leader).
The End User Board members gave their feedback on topics such as performance management indicators and questions of organisational culture in their respective police organisations. The next End User Board meeting will take place on December 10, 2012 in Potsdam (Germany) and be combined with a Practitioners Conference to discuss the research findings that will be accumulated until then.
The End User Board is an important part of the governing structure of COMPOSITE. It consists of EU police officers from all participating countries on operational and tactical levels. The members of the End User Board act as a sounding board for quality and relevance of the deliverables and are especially important to discuss cultural and national differences in police work.
