The two-day ANZPAA Police Conference - PC20 - will bring together 450+ current and future decision-makers and leaders in law enforcement from across Australia, New Zealand and the world.
Hosted by the Police Commissioners from across Australia and New Zealand, PC20 is about Smart Connected Policing – law enforcement working more efficiently and effectively –internally, with our external partners and maximising enabling technology.
As the world continues to change rapidly around us, we must work harder and smarter to outpace the increasingly sophisticated tools at the disposal of criminals and the complex environment in which we operate. Law enforcement is best positioned to overcome these hurdles by working closely with other government partners, industry, academia and – above all – the communities we serve.
PC20 will look at how we can best facilitate those essential connections and leverage partnerships across local, national global levels for effective results. Police Commissioners and other leading experts will examine these major issues facing police today and into the future.
I look forward to seeing you there!

Chief Executive Officer, ANZPAA
