2021 Abstract Submission


The 2021 Australia & New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing (ANZSEBP) Conference will be held 17 – 19 August at Vodafone NZ HQ, Smales Farm in Auckland. This year’s conference brings another packed and world class group of speakers together.

We invite law enforcement and researchers working with law enforcement to submit an abstract for a “Short Shot” presentation on completed or in-flight research in policing. Presentations should relate to one of the conference sub-themes, and may include research to better understand and target problems, programs that are being trialled or have recently been evaluated, and efforts to implement evidence-based interventions in law enforcement settings.  All abstracts should not exceed 250 words and consist of original work.

All authors whose abstracts are selected to be presented at conference are required to register for the face-to-face or the hybrid format of the conference and pay the registration fee, to confirm their participation in the program.  Travel and accommodation costs (where applicable) are also at the author’s expense.


During submission please identify from the list below the theme which best suits your presentation.  Alternatively select ‘Other’.

1. Counter terrorism and countering violent extremism
2. Responses to serious and organised crime
3. Reducing child sexual exploitation
4. Targeting high-risk offenders

This Short Shot Presentation will be allocated 15 minutes including question time and will be scheduled into one of the concurrent sessions of the 2021 ANZSEBP program.   Ideally the presenter will attend the conference in person to present, though consideration may be made for virtual attendees on a case by case basis.   A recording of your presentation will be included in the online platform for registered delegates to watch for 3 months post conference.

The presenting author must register and pay to attend the conference for the accepted short shot to be included.


These presentations are pre-recorded and made available through the 2021 ANZSEBP Online Platform for registered delegates to view on-demand.  They will not be scheduled for a specific time during the conference days, instead they will feature in a on-demand gallery for 3 months from one week prior to the conference.  Your video will be accompanied by your 250 abstract overview, presenter biography and photo.
