The UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science is delighted to host the 2015 International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference in Manchester, England on the 26th and 27th February 2015.  The conference is being organised in partnership with the IACA and will double as the IACA's International Training Symposium.

The conference is THE event for intelligence professionals, analysts, community safety officers, investigators, and researchers interested in intelligence-led policing, problem solving, partnership working, crime prevention, and the analysis that underpins decision making.  The conference appeals to practitioners and academics, albeit with all content directed at practical means for improving policing and public safety. 

The conference is primarily a training event through the many classes that are on offer; an opportunity to learn from good practice from the presentation of real world cases, applications and problem solving; from the latest research that has a very strong operationally applied focus; and from key leaders who are innovating new ways for delivering policing and community safety services.

How to register: registration will open in October 2014.

The programme for the 2015 conference includes:

  • Keynotes:

    • Mark Evans, Deputy Chief Executive of New Zealand Police
    • Jerry Ratcliffe, Professor of Criminal Justice at Temple University
  • Conference programme:

A full conference programme will be available in late December 2014.  Our conference programme includes seminar streams, with presentations chosen from submissions to our call for abstracts, and technical workshops and classes which provide for a more interactive learning opportunity for delegates.  Topics will likely include
