The conference includes a two-day programme of roundtable discussions between academics, practitioners and other attendees on the broad topics of technologies of crime, justice and security.

Such technologies include those which not only assist and enable criminal activity such as the internet (Cybercrime), lock picking, surveillance, transport, but also those which help the policing mission, such as body cameras, CCTV, monitoring devices, crime data, GIS mapping, and more.
