Community safety conference to be held in June

National Community Safety Network (NCSN) : 31 March, 2009  (New Product)
The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds will be the venue of a conference in June dedicated to the development of safer communities
Anyone involved in making our communities safer should come to Leeds this June.

That's the message from the organisers of the 14th annual National Community Safety Network (NCSN) conference, which takes place on the 9th and 10th June at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds.

NCSN has unveiled a packed conference, programme comprising top international speakers and the industry's leading lights alongside seminars and workshops that will give anyone working in community safety the opportunity to air their views, share their knowledge, network and hear the latest thinking from industry leaders and other community safety experts.

The annual conference, supported by Leeds City Council and Safer Leeds, brings together people from all over the world with a common interest in promoting safer communities. Over 350 people attended last year's event, representing a range of sectors including fire, police, ambulance, housing, security, drugs, alcohol, gun crime, violent crime and youth work professionals.

Former deputy assistant commissioner, Brian Paddick, is this year's MC. He will introduce a packed programme of speakers, workshops, debates, master classes and networking opportunities, providing the perfect forum for sharing expertise and thinking across a range of cross cutting issues that can make a real difference to communities throughout the UK.

Jane Mowat, Chair, of the National Community Safety Network says, "Community safety moves further and further up the agenda every year, and there is a huge amount of work going into making our communities safer.

"The conference, brings these people together to share their experiences, thinking and expertise with people across other sectors whose goals are the same. Our aim is to integrate the vast amount of work that is going into making our communities safer, learning from others to improve community safety across the board.

"I'm particularly excited about the international element to this year's conference. We will be joined by Margaret Shaw, director of analysis and exchange at the International Centre for the Prevention of Crime in Montreal; and Elizabeth Johnson, deputy director at the European Forum for Urban Safety (EFUS). They will be sharing their experiences and encouraging joint international working."

"I'm also thrilled to welcome one of the UK's most influential housing professionals, Dr Tom Manion, current chief executive of Irwell Valley Housing Association. He'll be joined by Adam Crawford, Professor of Criminology at the University of Leeds to bring neighbourhood happiness to the agenda and explore the relationship between research, policy and practice in the fields of community safety as well as the regulation of anti-social behaviour."

Throughout the conference, delegates will have plenty of opportunities to voice their opinions on the topics that really matter. A variety of master classes have been developed specifically to facilitate debate between academics and practitioners on the latest theories and address issues including 'Graffiti - Public Art or Vandalism?', as well as offender management and Leeds' award-winning 'Weapons Awareness' programme.

Says Jane Mowat, "I would urge anyone involved in community safety to make time to come to the conference, - our feedback shows that the people who do come benefit hugely from their involvement, taking away useful contacts, knowledge and practical support that they can apply in their day-to-day work."
