The first day of the 6th International Conference on Crime Observation and Criminal Analysis is already shaping up to be a great success! With workshops 1 to 6 coming to an end, participants from all six continents were able to attend. Today's workshops focused on the following phenomena and themes: data quality and integrity; violence and discrimination in the public sphere; drugs and security; small data; firearms trade and trafficking; as well as domestic violence. The speakers were able to present the different types of approaches used in the field, as well as the results achieved in terms of crime observation and criminal analysis.
Similarly, Ariane de Palacio (CIPC) was able to present the development of the International Standard for the Evaluation of Crime Observatories Referential during a plenary session set aside for that purpose. The referential provides a set of standards that will enable crime observatories to build their capacity. It provides a self-assessment capacity for observatories to use as a management tool in order to strengthen their capability and expertise.
