TISPOL International Road Safety Conference 6-7 October 2015

TISPOL's 2015 Conference took place last week at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport. Nearly 220 delegates gathered to hear presentations from a great line-up of senior police officers, policymakers, road safety and healthcare professionals.

A substantial social media conversation accompanied the Conference, with nearly one million people reached through Twitter during the two days of the event.

Here are just a few of the tweets posted:
