After the successful second CCPR conference 'Learning from Evidence: Mission Impossible' the CCPR annual conference returned on 20-21 June 2018.

The conference took place at the Canterbury Police Research Centre (CPPR) at Canterbury Christ Church University. Thehigh-level speakers gave their views on the challenges facing the UK police force. The topics were focus on entitled 'Taming the wicked and the role of partners'. 

Demand is increasing and becoming more complex for the police to manage. The extent and consequences of certain wicked problems is challenging a stretched police service in the UK. This conference considers some of these issues from both an academic and practitioner perspective - the two days will also focus on other wicked, internal and cultural issues and the way in which managing demand in this context impacts on the well being of police officers themselves.
