Responding to Past Harms
This webinar is the first of three precursor events leading up to our 2021 Cumberland Lodge Police Conference on ‘Towards Justice: Law Enforcement & Reconciliation’.

This series examines criminal justice approaches to addressing historical wrongs in society. In particular, it explores the role of the police in promoting successful and enduring reconciliation and the pursuit of wider social justice.

For this opening webinar, we will be joined by guest panellists:

- CC Simon Bailey QPM (Chief Constable of the Norfolk Constabulary)
- Wendy Williams CBE (Author of the Lessons Learned Review, Windrush Scandal)
- Matthew Scott (Criminal Barrister at Pump Court Chambers)

The discussion is presented by Martina Feilzer, Freelance Research Associate at Cumberland Lodge, and Professor in Criminology and Criminal Justice at Bangor University.

Chief Constable Simon Bailey QPM
@Norfolk Constabulary
Simon Bailey has been a police officer for 34 years, serving predominantly as a detective in King’s Lynn and Norwich. In 1998, he was seconded to the National Crime Squad and as Detective Inspector he was responsible for managing covert operations at a national and international level targeting serious and organised crime gangs. In 2000 he was further seconded to the Rosemary Nelson murder investigation in Northern Ireland for three years before returning to Norfolk as Detective Superintendent leading the intelligence directorate. In December 2005 Simon was promoted to the rank of Detective Chief Superintendent and became Head of Crime. In September 2013 Mr Bailey was appointed Chief Constable by the Police and Crime Panel. In January 2014 Simon became the National Police Chiefs Council lead for Child Protection Abuse Investigation and in May 2016 became national lead for Violence and Public Protection.
Wendy Williams CBE
HM Inspector of Constabulary and HM Inspector of Fire & Rescue Services
Wendy Williams is HM Inspector of Constabulary, and HM Inspector of Fire & Rescue Services. She has responsibility for 13 police forces across Wales and the West of England and 11 fire and rescue services in the West of England and is the Senior Responsible Officer for the Criminal Justice and Joint Inspections portfolio. She was previously a Chief Crown Prosecutor with the Crown Prosecution Service and before that a solicitor and partner in private practice. Wendy Williams is also the author of the independent Lessons Learned Review into the Home Office and its handling of events leading up to the Windrush Scandal. This was presented to Parliament in March 2020. More recently, she was also appointed as a non-executive director of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
Matthew Scott
Criminal Barrister @Pump Court Chambers
Matthew Scott is a barrister still just about practising in criminal law at Pump Court Chambers: a large ‘common law’ set with branches in London, Winchester and Swindon. His unspectacular practice involves defending a mixture of people down on their luck, career criminals, the genuinely nasty and the wrongly accused. Matthew always finds it difficult to know which category a particular client fits into, but fortunately it’s not his job to decide. He devotes some time trying to reverse convictions on appeal, with rather mixed results. Matthew writes about legal issues generally, and criminal law issues in particular, both on his own blog (www.barristerblogger.com), and for various publications including The Spectator, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Quillette and The Guardian.
