Hundreds of the brightest minds in law enforcement will convene in Anaheim next week for the 20th annual Problem-Oriented Policing conference.
The three-day event, scheduled for Monday-Wednesday at the Disneyland Hotel, “is often described by attendees as the most substantive policing conference they’ve ever attended.”
Seminars will be held on topics ranging from “Stemming Motor Vehicle Break-ins” to “Graffiti: Tag, Your Out” to “The Mechanics of Community Development.”
Anaheim PD has also been called upon to present. Police Chief John Welter will join Michael Scott from the Center of Problem Oriented Policing in opening the conference – and welcoming attendees. On Tuesday, APD Sgt. Tim Schmidt and Officer Dave Wiggins will present “Using Situational Crime Prevention in Anti-Terrorism Efforts: Manipulating Risk, Effort, Reward, Excuse and Provocation.”
