The murder of Drummer Lee Rigby on the 22nd May 2013 in Woolwich rapidly acquired the properties of a signal crime (Innes, 2004).

The study seeks to develop the Rigby homicide as a case study of social reactions to high profile major crimes to generate new knowledge about how publics interpret and make sense of such events.
The Universities' Police Science Institute (UPSI) led a programme of high-level research for the Dyfed-Powys Police & Crime Commissioner which revealed that communities want stronger neighbourhood bonds with the police.
