More than 300 law enforcement professionals from across the United States and several other countries are expected to attend a problem-oriented policing conference in southwest Ohio.
The annual conference that runs from Monday through Wednesday focuses on problem-oriented policing as a key means of fighting crime in communities. The policing method centers on crime prevention efforts that involve the community, the private sector and other public agencies.
A delegation of eight officials from Ukraine will be among the participants at the meeting.
The Miami Valley Crime Prevention Association and the Dayton Police Department are hosts for the conference.
Dayton Chief Richard Biehl says problem-oriented policing is making a difference in Dayton. He says the conference will help police officials further strengthen crime prevention efforts.
