NBPA supports the Kickoff@3 initiative with a number of our local associations involved in KickOff@3 in 2018-19:
- Durham Police BAPA,
- Wiltshire Police BPA,
- Police Service BPA,
- Bedfordshire BPA,
- Police Service of Northern Ireland EMPA.
Michael Wallace commented:
“… its not just about the football, but positive youth engagement, diversion, trust of the Police and career opportunities internally and external with the RAF and other good partners.
“Also Kickoff@3 are promoting the Police to the media in a good and positive light, especially with regard to our current challenges in knife crime. …this is the only current National Football , Music and Poetry initiative that is successfully getting the work done if others are looking for solutions.”
Janet Hills, NBPA Met Reserve has consistently supported Kickoff@3 vision and attended their collaborative presentation ceremony at Crystal Palace Sports Stadium in July 2018.
