The Policing Futures Masterclass Series is a unique collaboration between The Universities’ Police Science Institute (UPSI) and South Wales Police (SWP), designed to provide the knowledge, skills and experience required to develop critical thinking and evidence-based practice among those considered future leaders within the force.
The Universities’ Police Science Institute (UPSI), in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Swansea and University of South Wales, were commissioned by the South Wales Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to investigate the quality and delivery of victim services in South Wales and set out options for future development.
The purpose of the research is to provide a more evaluative component of the quality and delivery of victim services in South Wales consistent with the approach set out in the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime. It will determine the extent to which victim needs are being met under current arrangements, both in aggregate and by individual crime type by collating data on the following for each of the six areas identified in the specification..
The Open Source Communications, Analytics Research (OSCAR) Development Centre is a new, innovative, multi-disciplinary Centre bringing together academics and police practitioners to develop a research evidence base around the use of open source information for policing and community safety services.
David Cameron’s immediate response to the Paris terrorist attacks was to announce a significant rise in staffing and funding for the intelligence services, thus improving its capacity and capability to identify and understand the spectrum of terrorist risks.
America does better, says Martin Innes at Universities' Police Science Institute, Cardiff University, probably because it has to: the country has many small police forces that have needed to learn to share information.
