Dr Knight to address American Police Volunteers

IPSCJ Director, Dr Laura Knight, will this week attend the Volunteer Law Enforcement Officer Alliance Annual Training Conference hosted in Dallas, Texas.

Dr Knight will address delegates regarding the IPSCJ’s findings in the Citizens in Policing National Benchmarking Exercise and facilitate discussions that compare volunteering models in the UK and the US.

Dr Knight said: “It’s a great opportunity to present the IPSCJ’s work to an international audience of volunteer police officers.

“We hope to find out more about American models of police volunteering and be able to learn more about the differences and similarities to the UK’s approaches to recruitment, retention, motivations, experiences, and strategic approaches.”
