The Canterbury Centre for Policing Research (CCPR) conducts high quality applied research that aims to involve and advise policing professionals.
Research undertaken by members of the Centre will therefore be both strategic and practical, influencing policy and practice – this is central to our ethos. Our practitioner-centred approach will incorporate the views of all policing practitioners including senior leaders, private sector staff, police officers/staff and policing specialists through engagement with the CCPR and the development of the academic and police advisory group. This will engage officers in our work, ensure that all of our researchers are aware of the current challenges in policing and assist the translation of research findings into operational and strategic practice.
Emma Williams is the Programme Director for the MSc by research in policing. Prior to this she worked as a senior researcher at the Metropolitan Police Service conducting operational and strategic research on MPS priority issues and developed practical outputs to guide evidence based police practice and training. She also worked for two years, as part of a secondment process from the MPS, at the Ministry of Justice as a principle researcher conducting and advising on evaluations of various criminal justice policy. She is undertaking research on police treatment of victims of sexual violence. She is exploring this in the context of credible police work and the measurement of performance both by the organisation and by peers. Her research interests are policing and victims of interpersonal crime, police professionalism, the use of research and education in policing, public perceptions and confidence in the police and community policing - particularly in the context of the localism agenda. Emma supervises students on the MSc by Research in Policing.
