overview

Australia’s premier law enforcement technology and networking event will convene for its fifth year on 28-29 March 2017 in Canberra. The event will showcase the latest capabilities that are being trialed and developed to enable our police forces to become more effective and efficient in the face of increasingly sophisticated organised crime.

This event will bring together senior law enforcement officials, technology manufacturers, intelligence agencies, trade associations, prominent academics, industry experts and independent authorities.

The forum will examine the opportunities, issues and challenges that are currently facing the industry and will explore emerging technologies, information security, communications systems, tactical surveillance and other innovations in police equipment.

It will cover the expansion of forensic approaches to include a greater contribution into the intelligence domain to support disruption and prevention outcomes, domestically and overseas. This changed approach moves forensic science beyond its traditional mandate which has predominantly focused on supporting prosecutions. The AFP has moved its forensic business model in this direction and has embraced the many associated organisational reforms that are necessary. By doing so it has increased the relevance and effectiveness of these specialist capabilities and the opportunities to leverage them more broadly across the law enforcement and national security landscape

Today, agencies are faced with many challenges; resources are limited and agencies are doing more with less. Data is everywhere, but agencies are struggling to make use of it. Disasters are becoming more complex and widespread, requiring multi-agency response and coordination. So how can agencies address these challenges, while making the most of existing communications resources and investments? Through new applications and bridging solutions, agencies can connect different networks and take advantage of purpose built devices, secure communications, direct unit-to-unit communications to help address key challenges, increasing efficiency and productivity.

INNOVATION

9:10 am

Fusion of HUMIT and CYBER worlds – how to leverage both worlds in law enforcement work

Eyal Dykan, Co-Founder / Owner, Alata Group

9:40 am

In a global world access to emerging technologies is critical in the
fight against serious and organised crime and terrorism. Innovation,
co-design and rapid prototyping for data integration and visualisation
are needed to tackle tomorrows problems today. An area where
technology can provide early intervention in domestic violence, child
grooming and crimes against children, radicalisation is available
today but implementation is slow.

10:10 am

Technology is the new frontier for law enforcement. Listening.
Recording. Connecting. Storing. Retrieving. Tracing. Matching.
Technology seemingly provides the solution to the great challenge of
modern law enforcement: unlimited public expectations but limited
public resources. However, solutions can easily forget the end user
and cost everyone a lot more in the long run. Independent oversight
agencies see the vulnerabilities and deficiencies of solutions after
they are designed, purchased and deployed. It is high time we all
considered the price of technology in the Internet Age.

RESOLUTION

11:10 am

Leonardo Australia and its Automatic Number Plate Recognition ‎System - A powerful intelligence gathering tool

Michael Lenton, Executive Chairman, Leonardo Australia

Michael Hallowes, Director of Government, Enterprise & Emergency Management, Early Warning Network

11:40 am

This presentation will start with focusing on the key challenges faced
with carrying out multi source analysis within a law enforcement
organisation, ranging from increasing volume and complexity of
data, siloed data sources, limited analytical skills, through to
legislation. BAE Systems will then present and step through an
archictecture for a Big Data Approach to solving these challenges,
and bring this to life through example use cases as implemented for
some of our customers. The solution will then be set in the context of
the wider tools and processes including case management,
intelligence assessment, tasking and crisis management.

12:10 pm

The National Criminal Intelligence System (NCIS) will deliver a new,
federated platform for sharing information and criminal intelligence. It
has the potential to exponentially improve the way information and
criminal intelligence is shared and used, and enhance the ability to
prevent, detect and disrupt threats at a national level. The NCIS Pilot
Program is currently underway within the Australian Criminal
Intelligence Commission, in collaboration with 16 law enforcement
agencies, statutory authorities and government departments. The
pilot focuses on proving concepts relating to the technical, legislative
and cultural aspects that will inform a fully completed NCIS. This
session will provide an overview of NCIS, and highlight benefits and
potential implications for law enforcement in the future if a full NCIS is
delivered.

ADVANCEMENT

1:40 pm

This paper presents a generic modelling strategy that learns a
mathematical representation of crime. The developed framework
uses space time data from criminal records and demographic
information to build a model for crime intensity. Considering these
two types of information allows the models to be used as a powerful
predictive tool for estimating the number of crimes and also to
achieve inference over the mixture of factors that provide a
launchpad for criminal activity. The proposed models combine
parametric and non-parametric stochastic models which are fully
probabilistic, i.e. they capture the uncertainty in the prediction and
the model parameters. The fitted models can be used online by
police forces or by policy makers to take informed decisions and
ultimately address the issues in society that foster criminal activity.
We validate the proposed models over real crime data in the Sydney
Central Metropolitan Region and San Francisco.
