PICP CONFERENCE 2018
Nauru, 13-15 August

The 47th PICP Conference was hosted by the Nauru Police Force Commissioner Corey Caleb and the PICP Secretariat from 13-15 August 2018.  The theme for the 2018 conference ‘Security Challenges in an Online Pacific’ was selected to encourage members to discuss the challenges and potential solutions in policing in a Pacific that is growing it’s accessibility to the online environment.

Background and History

The PICP Conference is the annual forum through which collective PICP decisions are made, strategic direction is set each year, and major law enforcement issues are discussed.  The conference is open to all PICP members as well as key stakeholders and regional partners (invited as Observers).  Part of the conference (usually half to a full day) is reserved for a members-only ‘retreat’ allowing for more private and in-depth discussions.
