JDI hosts second Crime Mapping Conference

1 March 2004

UCL's Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science (JDI) hosted the second National Crime Mapping Conference on 9 & 10 March 2004.

Professor Gloria Laycock

The conference is the UK's primary event for those interested in and involved with crime mapping as a tool to support crime reduction and law enforcement, such as police officers, crime and intelligence analysts, policing and crime reduction policy professionals, researchers, and technology developers. Sponsored by the Home Office, the event showcased new techniques for supporting information analysis, as well as pioneering research into geographical crime analysis.

Professor Gloria Laycock, Director of the JDI, commented: "Crime mapping is playing an increasing role in supporting community safety, crime reduction and policing. It's a lot more than plotting crime scenes on maps, and this conference facilitates and encourages the exchange and integration of data among agents involved in these fields."
