8th National Analyst’s Conference

29-30 November 2023

Join us for our eighth national event that brings together operational analysts and other experts to showcase best practice, research and advice that is aimed at supporting the role of the analyst.

Our conference is the latest in our popular series of events that promotes the status and professionalism of analysts working in forces, wider law enforcement as well as government and other public and private sector roles.

It will provide a valuable online forum for analysts to network, share their views and experiences and to acknowledge the vital role they now play in public and private sector organisations in both reactive and proactive roles.
