Planning for crime

The crime statistics paint a confusing picture, with sharp differences between police data and estimates from the Crime Survey for England and Wales. What really lies behind the record number of sexual offences recorded by forces? To what extent has online offending replaced burglary, theft and car crime? What difference will recent changes in police recording practices make to the figures? What are the latest trends on anti-social behaviour?

How should forces respond to the changing mix of offending so they have resources and skills in the right areas? What should PCCs and Chiefs do to ensure their ‘uplift’ officers are focused on crime prevention and detection? And how can forces build capability and experience at a time when other careers and opportunities may be more appealing?

Breakouts

Panel discussions with key figures from policing, criminal justice, media, and the private sector.

On the record
A number of recent cases have raised serious concerns about relations between the police and the press - in particular the role of social media and amateur sleuths, the ability of forces to cope with journalistic demands in high-profile cases and the impact of reporting on victims and their families. How can police and the media build a more trusting and respectful relationship? Do limits need to be placed on ‘citizen journalism’? What can forces do to ensure their communications teams have sufficient resilience and expertise?



Gun laws
The Coroner at the inquest into the deaths of five people killed by a gunman in Plymouth in 2021 said UK firearms laws were “at odds with public safety” and weapons could be in the hands of people who “pose a risk to the public”. The Government is considering the findings, along with recommendations from the Scottish Affairs Committee following its inquiry into a series of shootings in north-west Scotland. Are legislative changes needed? How can police ensure firearms licensing rules are complied with? What more can be done to reduce gun crime in the UK?

Spreading innovation through the Practice Bank
The College of Policing has launched the ‘Practice Bank’ as a way to share information quickly about projects and interventions to reduce crime, improve community safety and bring about system change. In this breakout, we hear about some of the latest ideas shared and how the Practice Bank works as a pipeline to get great ideas tested, replicated and implemented nationally and internationally.

Policing and AI

From facial recognition, which can help spot suspects and missing people, to predictive analytics that can pinpoint where and when crimes are likely to occur, artificial intelligence provides huge opportunities for policing. Get the technology right and put the necessary safeguards in place and there will be huge benefits, in terms of efficiencies and public safety. But without sufficient transparency and oversight, particularly to guard against bias, there’s a risk of injustice and a collapse in public support.

Breakouts

Panel discussions with key figures from policing, criminal justice, media, and the private sector.

Fake news, real threats

The Covid pandemic provided fertile ground for conspiracy theories. Violent extremists and terrorist groups are also increasingly using disinformation to target vulnerable people and spread hateful narratives online. How can the authorities counter the threat? What can technology providers do? And will measures in the Online Safety Bill help?


Top Marks

In 2015, Humberside Police was rated “inadequate” by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary, Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) and was placed in the “enhanced monitoring” phase, often referred to as “special measures”, where it stayed until 2018. Four years later, the force received six “outstanding” and two “good” grades in one of the best reports in HMICFRS’s history. The force is now pioneering to mental health and social care call-outs, ‘Right Care, Right Person’. What lessons can PCCs and Chiefs learn from Humberside’s impressive turnaround?

Duty calls

Police forces across England and Wales are now required to work together with probation and youth offending teams, fire and rescue authorities, health agencies and local councils on a plan to prevent serious violence: it’s called the Serious Violence Duty. What does the Duty mean in practice? What needs to be done to make it effective? How will its impact be measured?
