Australia & New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing Conference#ANZSEBP2021

17 August & 27 - 28 October 2021


Following the NZ Government announcement this afternoon that Aotearoa New Zealand will move to Level 4 Lockdown from midnight tonight, ANZSEBP President, Superintendent Dave Cowan, and Vice President and conference host DCE Mark Evans have made the decision to postpone the rest of the Conference programme to a later date. A number of key New Zealand-based contributors and elements of the programme become unavailable as a result of this shift in levels in New Zealand, so postponement is unfortunately necessary. ANZSEBP and conference hosts New Zealand Police will advise all conference participants of the new dates as soon as we can, and we look forward to picking up the conversation then. Many thanks for your understanding and patience.

The 2021 Australian and New Zealand Society of Evidence Base Policing (ANZSEBP) Conference will take place for the first time in a fully online format and will provide the opportunity to reflect on the growing importance of embedding evidence-based policing as part of a wider range of police activity. 

The online format will allow unlimited attendees and a much higher capacity for presenters to participate in the programme.  In addition, the format allows sessions to be recorded for on-demand viewing post-conference, to increase participation by delegates in all timezones around the world.

The organising committee is working tirelessly to produce an engaging and memorable programme which will showcase current concerns and developments in Evidence Based Policing, focussing on the conference theme of ‘Policing Under Scrutiny: Leadership, Legitimacy and the Role of Evidence‘.

The Organising Committee look forward to presenting the 2021 Conference which will explore the current and emerging issues that will shape the future.

About the Association

The Australia & New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing (ANZSEBP) was formed in April 2013 in Brisbane, Australia. The ANZSEBP is a police practitioner-led Society. The mission of the ANZSEBP is to develop, disseminate and advocate for police to use scientific research (“the evidence”) to guide best practice in all aspects of policing. The ANZSEBP Chairperson serves on the Executive Board of the British Society of Evidence Based Policing, ensuring that the ANZSEBP works cooperatively with an international group of police to advance evidence based policing.

The Society comprises both full members (current, serving police officers in Australia and New Zealand) and honorary members including police staff members (non-sworn), research professionals and others who aim to make evidence based approaches part of everyday policing in Australia and New Zealand.

The Society is made up of police officers, police staff, and research professionals who aim to make evidence-based police practice part of everyday policing in Australia and New Zealand. The Society advocates that all aspects of policing including police patrols, investigations, crime prevention, human resource management, and all other forms of service delivery should be evaluated using sound, scientific methods and used when the evaluation evidence shows that the police practice works to control or prevent crime and disorder or enhance quality of life.
