The aim of our research is to further understanding of decision making, communication and risk management. We research decision inertia, risk management tools (especially in sexual offences), conflict, terrorism, major crime and interviewing and interrogation.
Our work uses state-of-the-art methods including: field based research, high fidelity simulations, real world training practise, scenario based learning and access to leading experts in law enforcement, emergency services and defence.
We work closely with the following organisations: Home Office, defence agencies, National Crime Agency, FBI, CIA, Fire and Rescue and Health Agencies.
We received 4* ratings for two impact case studies in REF 2021. These are restricted documents but relate to our work on child protection and interrogation and communication in extreme environments. Both Impact Case Studies involved field based research and the development of processes and tools that decrease human suffering, identify risk and create substantial commercial cost savings to UK Government.
