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 consultants and crime 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 are of varying sizes and use different formats, so you can choose the type of learning environment that works best for you.
