Data, evidence, research and insight


11-12 September 2024 Melbourne, Vic, Australia

The second conference of the Global Collaboration in Evidence Based Policing returns in 2024 with in-person conferencing over September 2 – 4 in Australia and New Zealand | September 11 -12 in the United Kingdom.

Evidence-Based Policing (EBP) has continued to grow globally since our last conference, ensuring that policing strategy, operations, and tactics are based on what works, according to data, evidence, and research. Rather than being guided by assumptions, tradition, convention, or subjective impressions, EBP combines the existing skills, knowledge, and experience of police with data-led research, crime science, problem-solving and testing to draw out the best possible insights to support decision making.

The 2024 conference will sharply focus on:

  • What Works in Managing Demand
  • What Works in creating and maintaining Gender Diversity
  • What Works in improving the Health and Wellbeing of our people
  • What Works in Recruitment and Retention
  • What Works in targeting Retail, Youth Crime and Gangs
  • What Works in reducing Counter Terrorism Risk
  • What Works in targeting Family Violence

The Australia New Zealand conference will run September 2 – 4 and the UK conference will run September 11 – 12, with more than 30 hours of world class conference programming between them. In Australia and New Zealand, the third conference day will provide an optional Gender Diversity in Policing Masterclass alongside a Youth Crime and Gangs Symposium. Access to recorded sessions will be available to registered delegates one week after the event via the online portal.

The Australia and New Zealand leg of the conference will be held at KPMG conference facilities in Melbourne CBD, with a range of exciting networking functions scheduled to accompany formal presentations. We will be holding a networking event on the first evening, and a formal conference dinner and awards night at one of Melbourne’s iconic venues, the Long Room at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, following day two.

We look forward to welcoming you in Melbourne for a dynamic and fulfilling conference experience.
