Policing, Law and Justice Conference


29 November 2012

Westminster, London



Following on from the success of our Policing and Justice conferences in April 2011 and February 2012, Government Knowledge are proud to present our third conference in this series focussing on the significant changes being made in the policing and justice arenas.


With the Police and Social Responsibility Bill reaching royal assent in September 2011, this November will see the first ever election of Police and Crime Commissioners. This timely conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to come together to assess the new policing and justice landscape following on from the election of the Commissioners and what the future holds for local law enforcement agencies.


This conference will also focus on the ever changing environment in which we are operating, with budgets being tightened, this conference will provide attendees with some key examples of cost savings measures both on the frontline and in back office functions, without adversely affecting crime levels.


Key topics to be discussed at this conference include:

  • Police and Crime Commissioners – An Early Assessment
  • The transition to the new National Crime Agency
  • Accountability in policing
  • Joining up police and probation through technology
  • The future of Legal Aid
  • Increasing the use of technology in policing and probation services
