    • Conducting interviews
    • Running quantitative analysis
  • Co-ordinating focus groups and evidence based café’s

These could be specific topics, for example; Illegal immigration and trafficking, honour-based violence and forced marriage, mental health issues within policing, domestic abuse, child abuse, vulnerable adults and high tech crime investigations. In addition, specific areas of the policing family are also of interest, for example, wellbeing of our staff, recruitment and continued professional development (CPD).

Location: Police Headquarters and/or police stations across Lancashire (depending upon research topic). However, for those wishing to undertake literature reviews, these can be done remotely from any location worldwide.
