Welcome From The Chair

Welcome to the Policing Network website. The Policing Network aims to bring together academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners who are interested in developing better understanding of contemporary issues relating to policing. The remit of the Network is broad, reflecting our desire to include a wide range of specialists interested in current debates about policing. Academic interest in policing has expanded in terms of the volume of scholarly and policy work. Additionally, this expansion has been informed by a broader conceptualisation of policing as a process of governance and regulation that encompasses agencies across and beyond the criminal justice system. The work of the Policing Network reflects these developments and provides a forum for scholars, policy-makers and practitioners to exchange and debate contemporary issues.

The Policing Network is a specialist group constituted under the auspices of the British Society of Criminology (BSC), although membership is open to anyone who is interested. The Network aims to open communication and facilitate critical reflection and exchange within and between the academic, policy and practice communities nationally and internationally.

Please take time to explore the content of our website to find out more about the activities of the Policing Network, and check back for updates soon. We would be delighted to hear from you if you have information about activities or events we ought to know about and if you would like to get involved in the Network.

  1. Enterprises having a large website with a lot of traffic influx will require
    the reseller hosting package. The web design on a web hosting providers website is
    a quick and easy indication of the quality of the provider.

    You can be diligent about protecting your website but someone else on the same server
    might not be.
