26th Annual Problem-Oriented Policing Conference
October 24-26, 2016
Mission Palms Hotel and Conference Center
The Center for Problem-Oriented Policing
Tempe Police Department and the Arizona State University School of Criminology and Criminal Justice
The annual Problem-Oriented Policing Conference is often described by attendees as the most substantive policing conference they've ever attended. Each year, police officers and police leaders, and all the ranks in between, as well as crime consultants and crime researchers, come together to discuss what they've learned about trying to reduce different crime and safety problems. Attendees choose the workshops they'll attend from an agenda that will feature more than 20 different crime and safety problems. In addition, leading up to the POP Conference, the Center for Problem-Oriented Policing sponsors an international competition to identify the top problem-solving projects of the year. These are also presented at the Conference, and attendees help in judging the winning project for the Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing. Conference sessions are of varying sizes and use different formats, so you can choose the type of learning environment that works best for you.
In addition to presentations from this year's finalists for the Herman Goldstein Award for Excellence in Problem-Oriented Policing, the conference will feature sessions on a wide variety of topics including:
- Applying POP to Vice Problems
- Communicating Success in POP
- Responses to Convenience Store Problems
- Responses to Problem Motels
- Shadow Economy Crime Problems
- POP and Police Legitimacy
- Introduction to Situational Crime Prevention
- Homelessness and Nuisance Behavior
- Introduction to POP
- Networks of Problem Places
- A Collaborative POP Approach to Police/Social Work Problems
- Informal Conversation with Herman Goldstein
- Intervening with Frequent Police Clients

Additional topics will be added as the agenda develops.
