Research with policy and practice implications for policing
COPR is an interdisciplinary centre uniting researchers from across the University. The Centre has built a police force network across England and Wales. We offer a new approach to policing research, with expertise in areas such as organisational and individual behaviour, digital forensics, cyber security, investigative interviews, immigration, ethical challenges of policing technology, as well as legal regulations of criminal investigations, police custody and suspects' rights.
Watch COPR member Professor Mark Williams discuss and demonstrate the scanning technology his team uses to support the work of West Midlands Police in collecting evidence for investigations on BBC Two’s Forensics: The Real CSI.
