Speakers: Professor Jon Bannister (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Professor Susan McVie (University of Edinburgh)

Discussant: Kirsty-Louise Campbell (Police Scotland)

In recent years, policing has faced major resource constraint and budget cuts. Capability and capacity have been stretched as the demands being placed upon the police have changed and grown. This webinar will explore aspects of inequality in policing response to crime and vulnerability, and, how these are connected or differ across people and place. It will consider the potential for reshaping policing resources to enhance the capability and capacity of officers to meet emergent challenges, and develop strategic and operational approaches to tackling or reducing inequalities. The seminar will include the following topics:

  • Policing domestic abuse
  • Policing the Night-Time-Economy
  • Inequality in the response to calls-for-service
  • The impact of changing police culture on stop and search across neighbourhoods
  • Raising public confidence in policing
