2012 CEPOL European Police Research & Science Conference

Five years on from the publication of “Police Science Perspectives: Towards a European Approach”, the 2012 Annual Police Research and Science Conference reignited the initiative behind the 2007 report to take stock of the state of police science in Europe. The conference highlighted some on-going police science projects in Europe, the progress made in answering the key questions from 2007, and the prospects for the future.

The three-day conference was open to police researchers, scientists, practitioners and educators. The conference offered many opportunities for networking and exchanges of information, as well as giving participants the chance to showcase their own projects in an informal setting. Speakers included police science and research experts from across Europe, as well as practicing police officers who demonstrated the impact and effectiveness that police science has on daily work.
