Criminal Justice Master’s Programme Reports

In 2018 and 2019, the N8 PRP supplied student bursaries for collaborative master’s dissertation projects on policing priorities that are identified by project partners (West Yorkshire Police and Safer Leeds). This was managed by Donna Marie Brown and Nicole Westmarland, Durham University.

Five bursaries were funded for students on the Criminal Justice MSc programme at the University of Leeds. Four reports are now available, the final report will be published later in 2021.
