An opportunity to improve collaborative work
Organised by the Better Policing Collaborative, the Police Research Fair in Birmingham will bring together a wide group of people from different agencies to consider ways to develop collaborative work.
The Better Policing Collaborative is a regional network of police forces and academics with five universities (Birmingham, Nottingham, Liverpool, Aston and Warwick) and Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Merseyside, South Yorkshire and the West Midlands police forces. The Collaborative is funded by the College of Policing’s Innovation Capacity Building Fund.
Topics to be covered include: Public Protection, Family Violence, Extremism, Cybercrime, and Reoffending
About the Collaborative
The Collaborative aims to drive innovation and bring the research and delivery communities together to address already identified policing priorities such as public protection (family violence and sexual offences), abuse and exploitation of vulnerable people, radicalisation, violent offending and offender management. The Collaborative also offers an opportunity to tease out the critical issue in these and other areas and to bring together the wide range of academic disciplines, for example behavioural sciences, law, economics, management sciences, sociology and information technology, with strategic and operational policing experience. A key objective is the development of the Collaborative as the hub for priority identification, problem solving and innovation in dissemination working with police forces and police and crime commissioners to get the best evidence to help them cut crime and keep the public safe.
