Leading figures from policing and security to speak at UEL

PolCon 7, one of the most important annual events on the policing calendar, will be held from 31 August to 1 September this year at the University of East London. 
This year’s theme is “Formulating a new model of Policing for the 21st Century.” But why this topic? 
Crime is changing. Cybercrime, child sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and terrorism are the new crime frontiers. Our police forces need to be able to meet the challenges. 
The police force is also changing. Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected for the second time on 5 May 2016 to police force areas across England and Wales. They have immense power, and have brought a new level of accountability, complaints investigation and the new demands on the UK police.
Hear from well respected speakers on new crime demand, new arrangements for handling police complaints and restorative justice. Policing experts, academics and others from related agencies, will provide informed comments on where policing is today and likely to be in the next decade.

Keynote Speakers include: 
Jon Boutcher (QPM) – Chief Constable, Bedfordshire Police
Sarah Green - Deputy Chair, IPCC
David Armond QPM - Deputy Director General, National Crime Agency
Peter Neyroud - Lecturer in Evidence-Based Policing / PhD student, University of Cambridge
