The Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR)
is organising the Scottish International Policing Conference on 14 November, building on the success of the International Policing Conference organised
Supported by Selex ES and the Scottish Government, the theme of this year's conference is Innovation in Policing, with contributions from the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Kenny MacAskill, MSP, the Chair of the Scottish Police Authority, Vic Emery, OBE and the Chief Constable of Scotland, Sir Stephen House, QPM
this important conference will provide a space in
which to learn about innovative approaches to
tackling policing challenges in the 21st century
as well as the opportunity for knowledge exchange
with international colleagues
Bringing together contributors from the US, Australia and Europe, the conference will be Chaired by Paddy Tomkins, Director of Droman Ltd and former Chief Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland, and will focus on the challenges of transforming information into intelligence, the importance of targeting interventions, and different approaches to enhancing trust and confidence in policing.
With inputs from senior figures from government, policing, industry and the research community, the conference will not only address the challenges that face policing, but provide insights into potential policy and technological solutions.
Building on the success of the conferences held in 2011 and 2012, and set against the backdrop of one of the most radical reforms to policing in Europe that saw the creation of a single, national police service for Scotland in April 2013, this international event provides an important space in which to learn about the changes that have taken place in the first 8 months of the new force and future developments, as well as share new ideas and develop international networks.
The venue will be The South Hall Complex, located at Pollock Halls, University of Edinburgh.
Pollock Halls is below Arthur's Seat, close to Edinburgh's historic Old Town, and readily accessible from Waverley train station and Edinburgh International Airport.
The Programme will include:
Spaces are limited to 180 delegates
