  2. Conference: Society for Evidence Based Policing

Conference: Society for Evidence Based Policing


Please note Day 2 - Friday 2 March - of this conference is cancelled due to the adverse weather. Please do not travel to the venue as it is closed.

The Society for Evidence Based Policing Conference is hosted by The Open University’s Centre for Policing Research and Learning.

The Society for Evidence Based Policing (SEBP) is made up of police officers, police staff, and research professionals who aim to make evidence based methodology part of everyday policing in the UK.

The Open University’s Centre for Policing Research and Learning contributes through research, education and knowledge exchange to the work of police forces as they adapt to a changing policing landscape, with its greater emphasis on evidence-based practice.

The conference will showcase new research and knowledge across all areas of policing and will include world-class academics.

SEBP conferences have become known for delivering the latest applied research that challenges many of the assumptions that are made in policing.  Delivery is fast and furious, there are opportunities also to network and break-out sessions allow for more interaction with speakers.

Space is limited and the conferences always generate waiting lists for attendance so it is worth booking early. Organisations can block book spaces if required.

More details on the sessions covered will follow shortly. If in the meantime you have any questions, please call us on 01908 655261.
