PROVISIONAL AGENDA FOR 2018 CSI CONFERENCE NOW AVAILABLE

39th Annual Conference

The Annual CSI Conference is a forum that brings together senior law enforcement officials, policy makers, crime prevention NGO’s, media and Crime Stoppers program members from around the world to discuss changing patterns in criminal activity, share best practices and discuss solutions.

The theme of this year’s Annual Conference, Creating Alliances Against Crime, speaks to the very heart of Crime Stoppers, to one of the key cornerstones on which our organisation has been built.

Since its inception in 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Crime Stoppers has forged innumerable successful alliances with law enforcement and the media to help us in mobilizing citizens to anonymously report crime and criminal activity, and thereby make their communities safer.

Today, Crime Stoppers International is the umbrella organisation for approx. 800 certified Crime Stoppers programs operating in 26 different countries across seven geographic regions. As such, we are the global authority on anonymous reporting and represent an unparalleled network of trusted reporting platforms – hotlines, websites and mobile applications.

However, just as Crime Stoppers anonymous reporting platforms have become more sophisticated over the course of the last 40 years, so too have the operations of transnational criminal networks.

Not only are these networks expanding, but they are also diversifying their activities with the most commonly seen transnational organized crimes being money laundering, cybercrime, human trafficking, smuggling and kidnapping, and the trafficking of drugs, weapons, endangered species, body parts, toxic waste and nuclear material, and illicit goods.

The effort needed to combat transnational organized crime requires a coordinated global response and, to this end, Crime Stoppers International intends to lead a progressive movement to empower communities to take action against criminals and criminal networks operating in their societies. This effort, which is to be known as The Hague Accord will be ratified at the conclusion of the conference.

The Conference will be a forum that brings together senior law enforcement officials, policy makers, crime prevention NGOs, media and Crime Stoppers program members from around the world to discuss changing patterns in criminal activity, to share best practices and to explore solutions.

Conference attendees will benefit from a content-rich agenda and have significant opportunity to interact with speakers and panellists who are all recognized as experts and leaders in their respective fields of endeavour.

Comprising three full days of sessions, the conference will provide delegates with tremendous professional development and networking opportunities. Plenary sessions will be rich in content and will allow for full participation. Workshops on key topics such as communications, partnerships and donor engagement will also be part of the program.

There will be a Welcome Reception on Monday 29th October and President’s Dinner on the Wednesday 31st October at which the 2018 Award winners will be announced.

The Conference will be held at the Hilton The Hague, located in the Embassy Quarter – in the heart of the city and within walking distance of some of The Hague’s most exciting attractions, parliament buildings and embassies, theatres and museums – and where a specially discounted room rate has been negotiated for delegates.
