Effective Partnerships: how can police work with academia, business, health care providers and each other to better serve their communities?
In May and June 2021, the N8 PRP will be hosting the sixth Policing Innovation Forum which will bring together key academics, police, and other stakeholders together to discuss contemporary challenges in policing and look to develop innovative, practical, and evidence-based solutions.
The theme for this year’s forum is Effective Partnerships in Policing, drawing on case studies, experience, and research. There will be three sessions; the full programme for each session will be made available here.
12 May What Works in Police Partnerships?
What can successful partnerships teach us about what works in partnerships between police forces, and with academia? How can police and academia foster robust, collaborative, critical partnerships in a time of public debate about the role of the police?
Prof Joanna Shapland chairs a programme featuring Matt Parr CB, Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services, discussing inter-force partnerships, a view from the USA on research partnerships in a time of declining trust in the police from Professors Geoff Alpert, Jeffrey Rojek and Kyle Mclean, and presentations from Richard Reeves from North West Underwater Search & Marine Unit and colleagues from the University of Sheffield.
