Abstract

The Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR) is a consortium of thirteen universities, which was established in 2007. It is supported by investment from the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland and the Scottish Funding Council. The key aims of the Scottish Institute for Policing Research are: - To undertake high quality, independent research of relevance to policing in Scotland; - To engage in a range of knowledge exchange activities in order to strengthen the evidence base on which policing policy and practice are developed; - To provide a single focus for policing research in Scotland in order to foster the development of national and international links with other researchers, policy makers and practitioners; - To enhance policing research capacity in Scotland by developing the research infrastructure and enhancing research skills.
