With ecrime 2008 finished, I've six months before I have to start working with the team on planning ecrime 2009 and inviting speakers to attend. This year was seen by many as the best yet - certainly the best attended - and took a tremendous organisational effort from everyone involved. I would really like to see the Home Secretary pay us a visit in 2009. To date, we have had MPs' Jim Paice, Vernon Coaker, Caroline Flint, James Brokenshire and David Davis and by the time it comes around again, perhaps government will have adopted a firm new policy on the subject?
