This Conference is organised by the Scottish Institute for Policing Research


The prize provides the winners with the opportunity to collaborate with SIPR and Police Scotland to consider how their research can be further developed and how it might inform policing practice in Scotland. This level of access to established researchers and police practitioners will afford the winners a unique opportunity to contribute to the body of knowledge that informs policing and the potential for their research to have a direct impact on police practice in Scotland.

Participants will also be invited to have their work published on the SIPR blog which is disseminated to a large network of researchers and practitioners.

This symposium offers an excellent opportunity for students to have their work shared to a wide academic and professional audience with a view to making an impact on policing in Scotland, and is intended to be held as an annual event.
