“Transatlantic Perspectives on the Local Pursuit of Intelligence”

April 2-3, 2009

University of Illinois College of Law

Conference Organizers: Jacqueline Ross, University of Illinois College of Law, and Thierry Delpeuch, Centre National de Recherche Scientifique

Jointly sponsored by the University of Illinois College of Law; the University of Illinois College of Law’s Program in Criminal Law and Procedure; The University of Illinois Police Training Institute; the University of Illinois European Union Center; the United States Embassy in France; the Ministry of the Interior of France (Délégation à la prospective et à la stratégie); the Agence Nationale de Recherche; and France’s Centre National de Recherche Scientifique

This conference will explore new developments in the ways in which police acquire knowledge about the security needs and crime problems at the local level of law enforcement. Held at the University of Illinois College of Law, this gathering will bring together European and American scholars of criminal procedure, criminology, and legal sociology, along with policing and intelligence professionals of the United States and France. New security concerns in the United States, the United Kingdom and France have altered the information flow between the police and local communities and have changed policing strategies. In the United States and Europe alike, concerns about terrorism and national security have heightened demands that local police collaborate with national authorities, implement national immigration controls, and collect new kinds of intelligence, while continuing to identify and to address the very local needs and crime problems of the communities they serve. This conference will explore the ways in which the police balance the pursuit of information needed to address local problems of crime and order-maintenance with the need to identify and pass along intelligence of interest to central and federal authorities. In accommodating these competing demands, police departments have developed a variety of new intelligence-gathering initiatives, known as “intelligence-led policing,” that employ risk assessments and crime pattern analysis to orient police efforts towards their most promising use. Participants will discuss a variety of such programs in the United States, Great Britain, and France. Presentations will highlight new efforts to develop the local base of intelligence expertise and will address the ways in which new programs seek to balance competing local and national demands.

The conference will take place on Thursday, April 2, through Friday, April 3, 2009, at the University of Illinois College of Law. Panels scheduled for April 2 will be held in the Rowe Auditorium. Panels scheduled for April 3 will take place in the Faculty Conference Center on the second floor of the College of Law.

The schedule appears in the continuation of the post.
