The Role of Academic–Law Enforcement Partnerships in Tackling Organised Crime

calendarclock - (GMT)

This invitation-only workshop aims to identify best practice in successful partnerships between academia, policymakers and law enforcement agencies which are focused on tackling organised crime, to develop key principles for building successful future partnerships. 

Discussions will focus on those initiatives that unite academics and practitioners, looking to understand the modalities, rationales and impacts of these collaborations – what works, what doesn’t, and why?

Attendees will include practitioners and policymakers from across government, law enforcement and academia, and speakers will include:

  • Fiona Mclean, Evidence and Evaluation Advisor, College of Policing 
  • Dr Rick Muir, Director, The Police Foundation
  • Professor Adam Crawford, Director of Leeds Social Sciences Institute, University of Leeds, and Director of the N8 Policing Research Partnership
  • Jennifer Parfrement-Hopkins, Lead Analyst for Organised Crime Research, OSCT, Home Office

The discussion will contribute to a briefing note that will be published by SHOC. It will outline key principles for building successful partnerships between academia and law enforcement. A full agenda will be circulated closer to the event.
