PIER Public Lecture Series 2020-21: Crime and Policing in a Pandemic

The global COVID19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown has become a watershed moment in our country’s history, affecting every aspect of daily life. This series of lectures investigates the impact these unprecedented events have had on crime and policing and examines the significant opportunities for learning which have been created, the changes introduced to policy and practice as a result and the readiness of policing to face similar events in the future.

Details of individual lectures will be published on this page.
