Exploring Health and Policing (b)

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 10:00

This event is jointly organised by the Centre for Policing Research and Learning, and the OU Health and Wellbeing Priority Research Area.  It is designed to bring together researchers and practitioners with expertise and an interest in health, wellbeing and policing. The purpose of the event will be to identify new research projects of interest to researchers and of strategic importance to the police, and to assemble teams to develop the projects further, with a focus on:

  • The health and wellbeing of policing personnel
  • Issues of health and wellbeing that fall within the scope of policing work, for example working with vulnerable witnesses and victims
  • Use of digital technologies (e.g. digital games, gamification, mobile apps and eHealth programs) to aid physical activity, health & wellbeing of police personnel
