Publications

Publications are organised within one of our four research clusters. Our publications focus on a range of policing and criminal justice areas.

 

The University has a long association with public service and police education and we aim to deliver research that explores: different approaches to learning, professional development and the use of education in policing, the relationship between learning and the impact it has on police practice, evidence based policing, crime analytics and the growing use of technology. Identifying the changing demands facing the police and exploring the skills required to ensure officers can effectively deliver to that demand.
