The conference theme ‘The Community’s Role in Disrupting Crime’ will explore the Australian Community’s current and future role in disrupting crime. It will examine how effective partnerships between select government agencies and Crime Stoppers can maker Australia safer and enhance national security.  

The two-day event will also enable participants to workshop ways to 'disrupt' current approaches, in order to reach new people and create innovative ways to encourage reporting or demonstrate the value of Crime Stoppers. 

This event is designed for those who plan, enforce, or support criminal law in Australia. It will be of use to those interested in encouraging and supporting the community to disrupt crime of all types to keep Australia sage – through programs, campaigns, and engagement.

Delegates will include law enforcement, government policy and operations areas, academics, business and community representatives and the media allowing for collaborative discussion from all angles.
