School of Criminology

What public engagement means to us

Driving change that benefits local, regional, national and international communities is central to our mission in the School of Criminology. Public engagement is a central part of this process, as it ensures that we understand the challenges facing our communities and work in a way that allows these challenges to be addressed.

Our public engagement work means that we engage with a wide range of stakeholders, including:

  • Businesses
  • Schools and colleges
  • Funders
  • Charities
  • Government departments and policy-makers
  • Criminal justice institutions (e.g. prisons, police, probation and prosecutors)
  • Criminal justice companies (e.g. private prison providers and forensic science companies)
  • Patients, healthcare staff and health authorities
  • Those affected by crime and those perpetrating crime
  • Community groups
  • The general public
