With demand going up and resources going down it is vital that police forces are able to try out new ideas and test different ways of working. Innovation is crucial if policing is to become more efficient and capable of keeping pace with social and technological change.
The Police Foundation’s 9th Annual Conference supported by BT and Cisco explored how to equip police, other professionals and organisations to try out new ideas and learn from their results. The event included some of the best leaders, thinkers and practitioners in policing.
The conference was opened by Professor Lawrence Sherman on the 20th anniversary of his lecture that launched the ‘Evidence Based Policing’ movement.
