Strategic SOCEX 2018

15 May -16 May 2018 Wokefield Estate, Goodboys Lane, Mortimer Common, Reading RG7 3AE

About The Event

A quick overview of the 2018 Conference

The theme for this year’s event is an important one, ‘The Global to Local Impact of SOC’, and within this theme we will look at a range of areas.  These will include the necessity for the development of a vision and the leadership required to turn the strategy into action, how the global threat can be linked to the locally visible threats, how the broader threat is being underpinned by the exploitation of the vulnerable and the harm that can result and how effective partnership working can be utilised to mitigate and counter the threat from serious and organised crime.   This will include work by a premiership football club that is having a significant impact.

We will also explore the broader narrative of serious and organised crime and what good looks like at a local and national level.  Presenters will include national leads together with many of those who continue to heavily influence the national discussion in some of these areas through legal, academic and political means.  There will also be an opportunity to ask a panel of expert’s questions across the range of topic under discussion.

Speakers will include CC Mike Barton, CC Andrew Cooke, NCA Director, Professor Sir Jon Murphy, with a Home Office Ministerial address to open and an anticipated keynote speaker from the United States of America.

The two-day event is made possible by the generous support of founding partner Altia-ABM, together with other business partners and there will be opportunities for delegates to explore the very real solutions that these partners are offering and supplying to the wider law enforcement community.

This event has directly led to positive change in our approach to SOC in recent years and there is no other event that brings together the issues, the thinking and the solutions in such a way and at this level.

I hope you will be able to join us and I would ask that in the first instance you confirm your attendance by contacting the event organiser.

Why attend this conference?

There is no other event that gathers together the UK’s prominent policing minds and leaders to exchange ideas and develop new and innovative strategies to take us into the next decade and further improve our collective response to the developing and growing threat from serious and organised crime.

The audience will be made up of senior members of the police forces in the UK, HMRC, DWP,  Trading Standards and other regulatory and enforcement authorities.The 2015 and 2016 Conferences had a limited international presence and the intention is to have a wider international perspective of serious and organised crime throughout the 2017 programme.

  • Governance and coercion in communities
