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
