Policing Riots: an Impossible Job?

This event brought together academics, police practitioners and experts in healthcare, fire services, criminal justice and counter-terrorism - as well as those working to understand and prevent violence and gang related violence. We discussed themes such as public confidence, violence prevention, police practices, community engagement and the legacy of the 2011 riots as well as earlier urban unrest. I spoke about the paper: Morrell, K. and Currie, G. (2015). 'Impossible Jobs or impossible tasks? Client volatility and front line policing practice in urban riots', Public Administration Review, 75(2): 264-275.
