We are committed to understanding problems and tackling them through evidence-based policing. We want to base future decisions on how to police our communities on what we know works, discovered by research.
We can provide the opportunity and data for students to analyse our work. However, we need academics with knowledge and skills in measuring and analysing that data.
This will help us look at our actions to discover what elements of the work we do actually achieve the results we desire.
This is an exciting opportunity for academics to help shape the future of policing across the West Midlands and make a real difference to the communities we serve.
