The lights of a police car in the night

The ever-changing landscape and governance of policing, community safety, crime prevention and victim services provide an ideal opportunity for research collaboration, knowledge exchange and dialogue between the research, policy and practitioner communities.

Founded in 2013, the N8 Policing Research Partnership (N8 PRP) enables and fosters research collaborations that will help address the problems of policing in the 21st century and achieve international excellence in policing research and impact. This programme of research and knowledge exchange has pioneered innovative collaboration between the eight most research-intensive Universities (Durham, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield and York) and 20 police forces across the North of England.

The partnership aims to build research co-production capacity and test mechanisms for exploiting the knowledge and expertise of the policing and HE sector in order to strengthen the evidence base on which police policy, practice and training are developed and so support innovation and the professionalisation of policing.

More information is available on the N8PRP website.
