Kongressprogramm 25. DPT-Digital

Passend zum Schwerpunktthema und den Entwicklungen der Corona-Pandemie geschuldet wird der 25. DPT-Jubiläumskongress am 28. & 29. September 2020 eine rein digitale Onlineveranstaltung sein. Das umfangreiche Kongressprogramm der ursprünglich im Kasseler Kongress Palais geplanten Präsenzveranstaltung wird in vier unterschiedlichen Formaten dargeboten. 

Smart Prevention: Turning the Promise into Practice

How can we ensure “Smart Prevention” works in practice? The promise of technology to support policing is often undermined by a failure to understand the complex human dynamics that enable policing to operate in the real world. Simplistic models of practice are adopted that suit the limitations and development priorities of technologies, making such solutions technology-centred rather than human practice-centred. New ways of working are postulated on emerging technological capabilities, while the impacts of these may be poorly understood and not properly considered.

Such an approach acts to undermine the perceived value and practicability of technologies that, if better designed and implemented, could provide useful benefits that support the roles and priorities of human end-users.

This presentation will draw on insight gained through the EU-funded project Cutting Crime Impact (CCI). CCI seeks to develop practical toolkits addressing high-impact petty crime for six law enforcement agencies (LEAs) from across the continent.
Prof. Dr. Caroline L. Davey
For the past 18 years, Caroline L. Davey has led research into the role of design in tackling crime, insecurity and other societal challenges. Design Against Crime began at Salford in 1999, funded by the UK Home Office and Design Council. Caroline led this research and innovation initiative to embed crime prevention within design education, practice and policy. Caroline established the Design Against Crime Solution Centre in 2005 — a unique research partnership with Greater Manchester Police and DSP-groep. Over the past four years, Caroline has been Advisory Board member and chaired a group of experts providing advice to the Horizon2020 European Security Research Programme.

Caroline has published widely on the use of human-centred design to address issues related to social responsibility, and was invited to author a volume in the seminal Socially Responsible Design series. Design Against Crime: A human-centred approach to safety and security outlines the development of Design Against Crime in the UK, and its wider impact on research, practice and policy across Europe.

Caroline is one of the originators of ProtectED, a design research initiative to improve the safety, security and wellbeing of university students by improving standards across the HE sector.

In 2018, Caroline secured over €3m research funding from the EU for the Cutting Crime Impact (CCI) research project. This will help police forces across Europe — including the Dutch and Estonian national police forces, Lisbon Police, German police in Lower Saxony and Spanish police in Catalonia — design innovative ways to fight crime.

Caroline has established a dynamic network of academics and expert practitioners employing action research and design to solve societal issues. Insight from previous collaborative projects is improving the integration of crime prevention within urban design and planning across Europe.

Andrew B. Wootton is Director of ProtectED, Director of the Design Against Crime Solution Centre and Senior Research Fellow at the University of Salford.

Andrew is a qualified Industrial Designer with two decades experience in design research. Over the past 15 years he has delivered multiple UK and European-funded projects on Socially Responsible Design (SRD) and design-led crime prevention.

Andrew has published academic articles, book chapters and design guidelines on the role of design within crime prevention, and the use of holistic, human-centred ‘design thinking’ to address problems relating to quality of life. He has delivered workshops on Design Against Crime and Socially Responsible Design across Europe and presented at international conferences and events.
