This second conversation with Assistant Chief Constable Chris Davison of Lincolnshire Police focuses on collaboration in policing.

The discussion covers three collaborations: East Midlands Special Operations Unit, East Midlands operational support, and G4S. The former collaboration involves the five forces of the East Midlands and focuses on major crime and serious and organized crime.

The conversation highlights the importance of collaborations for smaller forces like Lincolnshire to maintain capability and capacity. The conversation also touches on the challenges and lessons learned from collaborations and the importance of culture in policing.


  • Collaboration is essential in policing, especially for smaller forces, to maintain capability and capacity.
  • Collaborations like EMSU, EMOPs, and G4S provide specialized expertise and resources to tackle major crime and serious and organized crime.
  • Disaggregation from collaborations can be complex and challenging, requiring careful planning and consideration of culture and expectations.
  • Culture should be a primary focus for leaders in the police service, as it plays a significant role in organizational effectiveness.
