National Crime Mapping Conference 2010

delegate lunch

8th National Crime Mapping Conference

10 and 11 June, 2010

The National Crime Mapping Conference is designed to appeal to those working in policing, law enforcement, and crime reduction agencies, academia, and also technology companies interested in the benefits of crime mapping for supporting policing and crime reduction.

Comments from previous events: "Another excellent conference, this is really the only place where crime analysts from such a wide range of organisations come together"

"Very informative and excellent at teaching best practice to fellow practitioners; I'd recommend regular attendance"

"Excellent - all levels of expertise catered for"

"Inspired! It made me want to step outside my comfort zone of the work I usually do"

"It was a useful and informative event; the presentations I attended showcased innovative work from the academic and professional sectors, but kept this practical and useable for the largely 'practitioner' audience"

"Always go away with a feel good factor about the work that is going on in the crime mapping field"

Levels: G = General; B = Beginner; I = Intermediate; A = Advanced
