Map and Directions

The annual Problem-Oriented Policing Conference is often described by attendees as the most substantive policing conference they've ever attended. Each year, police officers and police leaders, and all the ranks in between, as well as crime analysts, consultants and researchers, come together to discuss what they've learned about trying to reduce different crime and safety problems. Attendees choose the workshops they'll attend from an agenda that will feature more than 20 different crime and safety problems. In addition, leading up to the POP Conference, the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing sponsors an international competition to identify the top problem-solving projects of the year. These are also presented at the Conference and attendees help in judging the winning project for the Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing. Conference sessions will be of varying sizes and use different formats, so you can choose the type of learning environment that works best for you.

In addition to presentations from this year's finalists for the Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing, the conference will feature sessions on a wide variety of  topics including:

  •        Introduction to Problem-Oriented Policing
  •        Introduction to Situational Crime Prevention
  •        Implementing POP in the Durham Constabulary (UK)
  •        Community Livability: Reducing Neighborhood Conflicts in a College Town
  •        Crime and Disorder in Budget Motels
  •        POP and Evidence Based Policing
  •        CPTED Old and New: Cutting Crime with Urban Design
  •        Opiod Abuse and Overdoses
  •        Reducing Traffic Crashes in a Procedurally Just Manner
  •        Understanding and Disrupting Networks of Crime Places
  •        Technological Responses to Police Problems: Which Ones Work?
