The Police Foundation’s Annual Conference
Policing and justice for a digital age
1st December 2016
Supported by BT
With crime increasingly moving into the digital domain, the police and the criminal justice system are entering a new era where criminality and law enforcement is more frequently conducted online.
The Police Foundation's seventh annual conference will focus on 'policing and justice in a digital age', addressing the skills police and justice professionals require in an increasingly internet-based society. This year's event will provide an opportunity to debate with and learn from some of the leading experts in the field about how the police, the justice system and partners can best respond to these new challenges. It will pose questions such as:
- How is the internet enabling new forms of crime and what skills and capability are needed to meet the threat?
- What are the implications of the next wave of technological innovations?
- How can we use big data to solve policing problems?
- What specialist and generalist digital skills are required and what does this mean for the workforce?
- What role can the private sector play in supporting the police to fulfil their part?
- How will digital technology transform the interface between policing and criminal justice?
- How will digital technology empower victims, from reporting a crime through to going to court, and what does this mean for frontline professionals?
The event will be chaired by Sir Bill Jeffrey KCB and speakers include:
- Stephen Kavanagh, Chief Constable, Essex Police (Confirmed)
- Paul Whittaker CBE, Common Platform Transformation Director, Crown Prosecution Service (Confirmed)
- Carl Miller, Research Director, Centre for the Analysis of Social Media, Demos (Confirmed)

The Police Foundation
The Police Foundation is the only independent think tank focused entirely on developing knowledge and understanding of policing and crime reduction, while challenging the police service and the government to improve policing for the benefit of the public. The Police Foundation acts as a bridge between the public, the police and the government, while being owned by none of them.
