Police Research & Education Network

 

Assessed as world-leading and internationally-excellent, research to develop the evidence base for contemporary policing is conducted across Northumbria University. Our work is characterised as:

  • Informing policy and practice. For example, through re-orienting Police response to youth offenders, or shaping the policing of wildlife trafficking across the EU, or helping design offender support programmes delivered by Police, Probation and third sector groups.

  •  Providing wide-ranging, cutting-edge science and applied research;

  • Working in partnership with the Police and agencies regionally, nationally, within European networks and internationally;

Research Themes

Current Research Activity

Undergraduate Placement Student’s Dissertation Research:

The Social Sciences Dissertation Work Experience module provides a rare opportunity for our most talented students to undertake a research based dissertation with an external organisation. Northumbria University is proud to work with Northumbria Police to offer student research dissertation placements. Students spend 1 day a week on placement and undertake an agreed research project, based on a police research priority. The placement provides a unique opportunity for students to put into practice their research training, whilst also gaining first-hand experience of the importance of evidence based policing. Below are some examples of student research projects:

Exploring the Experience of Call Handlers and Police Officers within Northumbria Police Whilst Dealing with Mental Health Vulnerability:  

This study of call handlers and police officers within Northumbria Police explores the different ways the management of mental health is executed, through a neoliberal perspective.

Operating Under the Cosh: Policing the Rural Landscape of Northumbria:           

This research study looks to explore the difficulties of policing the more rural areas of North Tyneside and Northumberland, and shows how Northumbria Police deals with these issues through community engagement and reassurance initiatives.

Victim Trends in Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery in the Northumbria Police Force Area from 2012-2017:               

Human trafficking and modern-day slavery have been on the rise in recent years and therefore requires more forward-thinking policing strategies that are intelligence based, making them more useful to local and national policing authorities.

A Study into Domestic Violence and Austerity within Northumbria Police:          

Using qualitative research, this study investigates if there is a relationship between domestic violence and austerity. As a result of this research adding austerity markers to police logs has been proposed.

Offender Management: To what extent do offenders think the scheme works for them?

Using qualitative interviews and literature research, this project aims to address the lack of opinions from offenders currently on the offender management programme. This research has identified minor yet resolvable issues but highlighted women require an entirely different approach to that applied to men.

Does alcohol remain a determining influence in youth crime and deviance? Are drugs becoming more obtainable?     

This small scale qualitative research project aims to identify whether there has been a decline in alcohol use amongst youths engaging in low level criminal and deviant behaviour and whether there has been a growth in drug usage, including new psychoactive substances (legal highs).

Domestic Violence and the police:  Could the police do more to ensure a positive outcome for the most vulnerable of domestic violence victims?

This small-scale research explored the relationship between the police and domestic violence victims. The research found that whilst victim satisfaction overall was high and pleasing, there was room for improvement in the ‘follow-up’ areas of a case.

Investigating the Nature of the Role of an Integrated Offender Management Police Officer:      

This is an exploratory study on the nature of the role of an Integrated Offender Management (IOM) police officer, based on their perceptions and experiences. The research concludes that the nature of the role of an IOM police officer is diverse but effective in managing offenders, although there is currently a lack of statistics and research to support this.

To what extent do the police and partnership agencies work alongside each other when tackling anti-social behaviour?

Ever since Vera Baird’s election in 2012, anti-social behaviour has been a policing priority for Northumbria police and has been part of their police and crime plan. This small scale research project focuses on how Northumbria Police aim to reduce anti-social behaviour, particularly through working alongside partnership agencies.

 

CEPOL Research:

European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL) Stakeholder Engagement Survey.Project Dates: January 2018 - August 2018

Research Context:

The purpose of the research is to understand in broad terms four key aims:

  1. How CEPOL engages with stakeholders and recommendations for improvements
  2. The expectations of CEPOL’s stakeholders and recommendations on how best CEPOL can manage these expectations
  3. How well-informed CEPOL’s stakeholders are about CEPOL’s work and recommendations on how best to keep them informed
  4. Why some Member States engage better with CEPOL than others and recommendations on how to improve this engagement

In relation to these four aims, a series of more specific objectives will be addressed through the phone interviews and online survey, these include:

Stakeholder satisfaction in terms of engagement with CEPOL

Are stakeholders adequately consulted?

What means are more effective in terms of engagement?

Stakeholder expectations of CEPOL

What are the expectations of stakeholders?

To what extent are stakeholders able to influence the content of programmes delivered by CEPOL?

To what extent are stakeholders able to influence the delivery mechanisms used by CEPOL?

Stakeholder information about CEPOL

What is the awareness and understanding of stakeholders towards CEPOL

How do stakeholders get their information about CEPOL and its activities

What do stakeholders think of CEPOL’s information products advertising CEPOL’s training portfolio and training opportunities?

Do stakeholders feel that they are sufficiently informed about CEPOL activities?

Member State engagement with CEPOL

Does the extent of engagement relate to domestic arrangements in member states?

Do member states that are more satisfied and have their expectations met become more likely to engage in programmes?

Research Methodology

In addition to desk-based analysis of training provided, take-up rates and outcomes the project involves two key survey methods. A survey of 160 key stakeholders will chart their experiences and perceptions of CEPOL training programmes, with particular focus on various e-learning services CEPOL provide. Coupled with this will be semi-structured phone interviews with police and law enforcement staff involved in training to gauge perceptions of CEPOL's work.

  • Professor Tim J Wilson, Professor Chrisje Brants and Adam Jackson, along with their colleague Derek Johnson are members of a one million pound international research project into police activity on part of the Dark Web; Police Detectives on the TOR Network (A Study on Tensions between Privacy and Crime Fighting) (PDTOR). The PDTOR project follows the award of a multi-national research contract by three research councils: NordForsk (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland), the UK ESRC and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research and will draw heavily on the expertise based in the Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice StudiesThe PDTOR project will see collaboration with colleagues from The Netherlands Open University, The Norwegian Police University College and Stockholm University in studying tensions between privacy and crime fighting on the TOR-network. In addition, the team will look at ways of ensuring that evidence of international criminal activity can be collected effectively and exchanged efficiently between different jurisdictions.
