Comments from delegates who attended previous conferences:

"Having attended a number of national/international conferences on analysis/research and broader policing I find the International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference to be the best in terms of developing our analytical approaches/techniques"

"I just want to drop a line and say how fantastic I thought the conference was.  Having organised conferences in the past I know how hard it can be to get up and running and I thought the event ran seamlessly.  I thought the presentations were very good and there was a lot to take back to parent organisations!"

"... found the practical analytical opportunities that I have taken away from the conference to be invaluable"

"Please accept, and pass on to the rest of the committee, the sincere thanks of myself, #### and ### who attended from ###.  We had a fantastic conference and learnt so much from all the other analysts there."

"With continual public sector cuts I was getting low about the future of analysis and the appliance of science in the workplace as many companies would rather invest in IT than suitably trained analysts.  Your event has ‘reignited the fire’ and demonstrated that the role has a huge value that is essential to problem-solving and driving policing forward."

Conference details:

The UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science was once again delighted to host the International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference in Manchester, England on the 25 and 26 February 2016.  The conference also showcased excellence in analysis by hosting the Association of Crime and Intelligence Analysts annual awards.

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, security and public safety. 

The conference is primarily a training event.  The programme includes instructional class-based sessions, provides the opportunity to learn from good practice from the presentation of real world cases, and will showcase applications, problem solving and the latest research that has a strong operationally applied focus. Our selected key notes are leaders in their fields, innovating new ways for delivering policing and community safety services.
