Announcing our sixth annual analyst’s event!
Join us for our sixth national event that brings together operational analysts and academic experts who will 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. 

Our latest event follows on from the highly successful event that we hosted at Wyboston Lakes in June this year in which analysts from many organisations in the UK and across the world came together to debate the key issues of the day and voice their views and opinions.
The aim of our sixth event is to encourage operational analysts who don’t otherwise get to address their peers to showcase their work and share their experiences.
