The 2018 TISPOL Conference takes place on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 October at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport.
Following the success of Project EDWARD in 2016 and 2017, TISPOL is once again coordinating Project EDWARD, the European Day Without A Road Death, on WEDNESDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2018
For 2018 our plan is to double our socials media engagement (we achieved a 25 million unique reach own Twitter in 2017) so that more and more people engage with our aim of reducing death and serious injury on the roads.
We also want to show that zero represents much more than a number... Zero means no midnight knock on the door, no lives torn apart...
Here’s how you can help in 2018:
- Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have some specific ideas, or wish to ensure you are included in all the Project EDWARD information we share
- Record a video message we can put on the Project EDWARD website
- Help spread the word on social media using #ProjectEDWARD
- If you have a budget and could become a supporter - or might be able to connect us to organisations willing to assist - then we would be enormously grateful.

Lithuania: comment from Marija Kazanovic
How does the participation in various entertaining events affect the image of a serious institution? Last weekend five Lithuanian police women's crew participated in the Women's Rally, along with several hundred female crew members.
