A message from one of our academic supporters
I have been writing for Policing Insight for over 3 years now and having seen the type of content they published, I worked on getting the university here at Christ Church to subscribe to the publication. Policing Insight offers a unique read for practitioners and academics across the criminal justice system and raises excellent questions about current affairs as well as regularly overviewing academic research which is relevant to the profession. It is challenging, diverse and inclusive in its approach which is what academia and policing should be in this day and age. There are a range of different individuals who write for the publication – at all ranks and roles plus those outside of policing as an occupation. This offers information on innovation and creativity across the service and then encourages academics to consider the evidence base around these new and diverse options. I really enjoy reading the pieces and am keen to endorse it to my students. It can even help those interested in research by asking questions about current day policing. I would always advocate this publication and very much support its progress.
