Leave a comment


POLCON 5 – The fifth annual conference of the higher education forum for learning and development in policing

During this time of austerity and restricted budgets, the police service is under considerable pressure to improve the level of service it provides to the public. Police managers and Police Crime Commissioners are being asked to put ‘what works’ at the heart of their joint spending and policy decisions, particularly with regards to reducing crime.

The return of ‘what works’ will form the back-drop for this conference. Moreover, it will examine how universities and the police service can collaborate to develop the evidence base and to foster excellence in policing.
