In parallel with the knowledge exchange groups (KEGs), as our research develops there will be a programme of problem oriented knowledge workshops/seminars open to operational staff, academics and other relevant partners, where the emphasis will be more on the critical scrutiny of more strategic and theoretical forms of knowledge applied to the tasks and challenges of policing and community safety.

Open Workshops/Seminars

The partners in the project (Keele University, Staffordshire University, Staffordshire Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire) will be organising a range of workshops to share information, knowledge and outputs from ongoing research, to discuss policing challenges and to discuss potential solutions.  Details of forthcoming workshops will be published here.
