Police Discretion: an ethnographic study


The University of Liverpool Management School has, for the past three years, been engaged in a long term ethnographic study of frontline police.  The work is multi-disciplinary, involving criminology and law as well as the Management School and our access is open-ended at present.  We wish to extend the breadth of our team and so invite research proposals and applications from students with any relevant disciplinary background to contribute to the work of the growing group.  Areas might include, for example: psychology and decision-making; the use and adoption of new technologies; or the use of intelligence in policing.

This opportunity will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
