Police staff and other practitioners with interests in policing are invited to submit proposals to the Institute for Practitioner Fellowships. These provide the opportunity to engage in a piece of policing related research under the supervision and guidance of an academic member of staff. Fellowships can be held for variable lengths of time and should be focused on a specific issue or question. Practitioner Fellows will also agree a set of outputs from their period of study, which might include a briefing paper for the police service and an article or conference presentation co-authored with their academic supervisor. Small amounts of funding are available to cover the costs of travel to and from the host institution and research expenses, such as photocopying and printing.
Those interested in applying for a Practitioner Fellowship are encouraged to contact the Director or one of the Associate Directors of the Scottish Institute for Policing Research.
Applicants should submit their ideas for research to be carried out under this programme (maximum of two A4 pages) to the Director of SIPR indicating the following:
Your objectives during the fellowship and the added value of the work in terms of its contribution to improvements in policing;
Applicants must also include a letter of support from their line-manager.
Assessment of your application will be in terms of its potential to contribute to improvements in policing.
