A collaboration between West Yorkshire Police, N8 Policing Research Partnership and the EPSRC Cybercrime Network

Cybercrime sits high on the international political agenda and police forces at all levels are currently seeking to respond to the new challenges that it raises for them: challenges that frequently fall outside their traditional remit, and during times of austerity. West Yorkshire Police in partnership with the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, Leeds University, the N8 Policing Research Partnership and the EPSRC Cybercrime Research network invite you to a Policing CyberCrime Workshop to be held on Friday 15th May in the Liberty Building, School of Law, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT Leeds. Attended by practitioners, policy makers and academics the aim of the workshop is to discuss current strategic threats and risks posed by cyber-crime and its impact on law enforcement, regionally, nationally and internationally. The workshop will also highlight investigation methods and inherent problems with cyber-crime investigation and emerging methodologies.

This event is also being co-sponsored by the EPSRC Cybercrime Research Network.
