#IIOC17 conference

The #IIOC17 was an event hosted specifically for both practitioners and researchers who were interested in tackling indecent imagery of children (IIOC) offending.

Jointly hosted by Norfolk Constabulary and the Policing Institute for the Eastern Region (PIER) at Anglia Ruskin University, this ground-breaking conference brought together leading figures from government, police, third sector, academia and industry to discuss new approaches to the investigation and prevention of IIOC offending.

The conference was a great success and was attended by more than 150 practitioners and academics. Here's what some of them had to say about the event:


"Probably the best conference I’ve ever been to – try and secure space in your diaries for this event!"

Jon Burgess, Detective Chief Inspector, Crime & Public Protection Command


"Stimulating conference that provided magnificent presentations to keep my knowledge and understanding up-to-date in a fast-changing area of investigation."

"Excellent conference. Really valuable to hone these learning experiences and get the chance to meet and speak with colleagues from around the UK."

"Being new to this area of policing, this conference has left me with a network to share experiences and gain advice."
