The core aims of the Policing Network are to:

  • advance understanding of policing studies;
  • provide an arena for information exchange, critical analysis and debate across the research, policy and practice communities – nationally and internationally.

To achieve these aims the Network will engage in activities that include:

  • organising and hosting conferences, seminars and symposia;
  • disseminating information through its JISCmail list and via scholarly publications;
  • responding to policy consultations and/or requests for information.
