It explores the complex emotions in the labour of police officers in the UK and seeks to put academic researchers in conversation with police practitioners.
Questions to be covered in the seminar include: How do police officers navigate emotional boundaries in their work and in their engagements with those they police? And how far are police forces becoming trauma-aware?
