Leading on from past highly-acclaimed annual Less-Lethal Weapons (previously Non-Lethal Weapons) conferences, this year's Less-Lethal Weapons 2003 Conference encompasses not only LLW, but other police/military tactical options ranging from negotiators to the deployment and use of conventional firearms. Since the Less-Lethal Weapons 2002 Conference last year there have been developments in research, new technology and the deployment and use of weapons in police forces. The UK police use of firearms has also been the subject of a Police Complaints Authority paper. Choosing the right tactical option at the right time for the right reasons will protect both the individual leaders and their organisations from criminal proceedings and civil actions.

There continues to be a significant overlap between military and police operations around the world. Therefore, it is appropriate that this LLW conference includes speakers and delegates from both groups so that best practice can be identified and shared.

The new Strathclyde Police Training and Recruitment Centre offers an unrivalled venue for LLW 2003. Providing state-of-the-art facilities the centre is a secure environment for such a high-level conference and delegates can sample legendary Scottish hospitality with the opportunity to couple this conference with visits to local places of interest.

The Jane's Information Less Lethal Weapons 2003 Conference 2003 is a must for all those leaders in the police and military who face the challenge of tackling critical incidents."
