Kelly Stockdale

I am a senior lecturer in criminology, and have previous experience working in police intelligence. My academic research falls across the following areas: 1, Drugs and Alcohol. My current focus is around (Novel) Psychoactive Substances, particularly the impact of substance use for both staff and users in a police custody and prison setting. I also research drug economies/drug markets and the links to organised crime. 2, Policing. I am particularly interested in police culture, organisational culture, and the role of police staff within the police force. 3, Restorative Justice, my PhD thesis explored the implementation of restorative justice across a police force in England and Wales.
