This event will provide invaluable insight into latest research findings into the policing of domestic abuse. Conducted by leading police researchers, the various projects address contemporary challenges relating to patters, challenges and responses to domestic abuse, one of the major issues in contemporary policing.
This half-day workshop is free to attend and provides excellent opportunities to up-date knowledge, develop new ideas, and to network with police, victim service, policy sector and research colleagues engaged in this field. The workshop is aimed at academics, police and practitioners from the broad range of public, private and third sector organisations engaged in domestic abuse prevention and victim support services.
This event is part-funded by the N8 Policing Research Partnership.
