Loughborough researchers at Leicestershire Police conference
Academics from Loughborough University are set to present at a conference on ‘evidence-based policing’ held by Leicestershire Police.
On Friday 24 March over 100 researchers, postgraduate students, local police officers and staff will convene at the University of Leicester to discuss research ideas and forge partnerships between academia and policing.
The PRO is comprised of academics of various disciplines across the University who are conducting research on policing, or whose research has a specific application in a policing context.
- ‘How does alcohol affect the amount and accuracy of information given by sexual assault complainants?’ – Dr Heather Flowe
- ‘What is Predictive Policing? What could we predict?’ – Dr Lisa Jackson
- ‘How effective can sport interventions be in reducing youth crime and anti-social behaviour?’ – Dr Carolynne Mason, Dr Caron Walpole and Professor Paul Downward
- ‘How wellbeing is prioritised in a rank based organisation.’ – Jamie Ferrill
