An audience with… Kate Halpin and June Networking

£0.00£30.00

We are delighted to welcome Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, Kate Halpin, to our networking event in June for an audience with….

Kate Halpin joined the Metropolitan Police in 1990 initially being posted to Carter Street Division covering Walworth and Camberwell. She has had a varied career serving primarily in investigative roles across South East London and a number of specialist departments including the Child Protection Major Enquiry Team, Professional Standards Department and the MPS’ Specialist Rape Command. As a native of South East London she clearly remembers her selection interview when she was advised by her interviewing panel to not expect a local posting and that the Metropolitan Police “could send her anywhere, even to Wembley”. Little could she imagine when she was interviewed in February 1990 that in 1999 she would become the first female to be awarded a Fulbright Police Fellowship to examine how the LAPD, LA County Sheriff, partner agencies and academics in Los Angeles policed youth crime and that in 2008 she would be seconded to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to spend 18 months as the UK Chief Police Advisor in Iraq.

In 2015 she was appointed as the Borough Commander for Lewisham, a borough she knew very well as it was where her parents were born and brought up and where her grandfather, who inspired her to join the Met, worked covering Deptford in the 1950s. In 2017 she was elected by her colleagues to represent them and their interests as The General Secretary of the MPS’ Superintendents’ Association (or as she explained to her mum she is the union rep for her peers!)

After hearing from Kate, we are gathering for a networking session and the chance to meet the new board.

Join us at 1800 at Browns’ in Victoria.

We look forward to seeing you there!
