Programme Hold

Nau mai, haere mai


Following the NZ Government announcement on Tuesday 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.

Evidence Based Policing – A Force for Change

Traditionally the police focus is preoccupied with an emphasis on response and reactive investigations. An evidence-based approach uses empirical research findings to guide policing practice on what works. Using real world examples during a period of crisis, hear how evidence-based policing is shaping strategies on the ground. How can police build trust and confidence during a period of COVID19 lockdown? Post lockdown, how can police prevent repeat offenders resuming a path to violence? How can police undertake patrols in micro crime locations to stop crime before it happens and create residual deterrence after they leave? How can police nudge offenders to appear at court to prevent them being arrested?

Superintendent Dave Cowan, Victoria Police & ANZSEBP President, AUS
Superintendent David Cowan has been a police officer with Victoria Police for over 30 years. He has been awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship to investigate evidence based policing worldwide. He has a Masters in Applied Criminology from Cambridge UK and has attended the prestigious Senior Executives in Government Program at Harvard US. In 2019 he was awarded the ‘Distinguished Police Scientist Award’ by the ANZSEBP. He is the President of the ANZSEBP and is stationed in Southern Metro Region of Melbourne Australia.

Keynote Speaker

Policing style and public trust in the police: The American case

Dr Tyler will examine a paradox in American policing: steep declines in crime without increases in public trust in the police. His argument will be that this is a reflection of the style of policing that has been widely adopted in America. The police have a lot to gain from changing that style and police departments in other countries should hesitate before they adopt it.

Dr  Tom Tyler, USA
Dr Tom Tyler is the Macklin-Fleming Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology at Yale University. His research concerns authority dynamics in groups, organizations, communities and societies. He has studied these issues in legal, political and managerial settings.
