The UK Statistics Authority is holding a high-level crime statistics event taking place 9.30am to 1.30pm, on Tuesday 9 June.

The event will be hosted by Sir Andrew Dilnot, Chair of the UK Statistics Authority, John Pullinger, the National Statistician and Ed Humpherson, the Director General of Regulation.

It will focus on what improvements can be made within the existing crime statistics framework, and how the statistical service might begin to collect, publish and analyse statistics on crimes that currently fall outside the scope of this framework.

We are inviting senior stakeholders, policy-makers and opinion formers from across the public and private sectors, as well as media commentators, researchers and analysts from this important statistical area. We hope that the event will provide us with valuable evidence for the ongoing development of crime statistics, based on an understanding of the decisions that are being informed by the data.

Confirmed speakers include Baroness Onora O’Neill, Mark Easton (BBC), Sir Thomas Winsor (HMIC), Chief Constable Sara Thornton (NPCC), Nick Ross (presenter and author), Professor Tim Newburn (LSE), Adrian Leppard (City of London Police) and Professor Sylvia Walby (Lancs Uni).

Places at the event are limited, if you wish to attend please email authority.enquiries@statistics.gsi.gov.uk with your name, organisation, role and interest in the area of crime statistics by Monday 25 May.

Spaces will be allocated shortly after this.
