This week (1-2 March 2018), over 200 police and academics from across the UK will meet to present and discuss research which can improve policing.
The annual conference of the Society of Evidence Based Policing (SEBP) is being held at the OU, and this year is hosted by the Centre for Policing Research and Learning. The Society is made up of police officers, police staff, and research professionals who aim to make evidence based research part of everyday policing in the UK.
The Chair of SEBP T/Assistant Chief Constable Alex Murray (West Midlands Police) will welcome delegates to the conference alongside the OU’s Vice-Chancellor, Peter Horrocks, and Chief Constable Francis Habgood (Thames Valley Police).
Ten academics affiliated to the OU Centre for Policing will present research findings which are both rigorous academically and impactful for policing on a wide range of topics from simulator training, through demand management to cybersecurity and public value. They are among a wide range of international speakers from the police and academia. They include presentations from:
Professor Jean Hartley, Academic Director of the OU’s Centre for Policing (and also presenting herself on research about analysing policing priorities) said: “The Centre is delighted to be hosting this major conference for the Society for Evidence-Based Policing. This brings together two organizations which are both committed to high quality academic and practitioner research in order to improve the evidence base of policing practice, so that the service to the public and to society is innovative and responsive.”
