De Montfort Policing Student Dissertation Conference

EMPAC are pleased to announce that De Montfort University’s Inaugural Policing Student Dissertation Conference will be taking place at 9am on Friday, 24th November 2017 at The Venue (Western Avenue, Leicester, LE2 7BU) very close to the DMU campus. It will conclude by very early afternoon – no later than 2pm.

The objectives of the conference are threefold:
  • Showcasing the quality of the student research
  • Disseminating the research to Leicestershire Police and wider policing audience
  • Providing benchmarks, guidance and inspiration to 3rd year student

Five recent graduates will be presenting their undergraduate dissertations into topics that have relevance for contemporary policing.

Topics include:

  • The user of Tazers – Manjot Grewal
  • Coercion and control in domestic violence – Sophie Bruce
  • Value of the PREVENT Strategy in curbing radicalisation – Bryony Elgey-Farmer
  • Police Leadership, blame and decision making – George Zarac

Three of the graduate presenting are currently serving police officers with Leicestershire Police.

Senior officers from Leicestershire Police have been invited and it is very much hoped that EMPAC will send representatives – so all members of EMPAC, and beyond, are hereby invited!
