Event description

Description

Making Diversion Work: using the lessons from Experimental and Systematic Review evidence on how to manage the effective diversion of offenders.

Making Diversion Work is a symposium co-hosted by the University of Melbourne, the Centre for Evidence & Implementation, and the Campbell Collaboration.

It will feature a keynote presentation from Peter Neyroud CBE QPM. Dr. Neyroud will discuss his work in the UK on making complex field interventions work better and will also focus on leveraging evidence to inform the selection of diversion strategies.

Peter is a Lecturer in Evidence-based policing in the Jerry Lee Centre for Experimental Criminology at the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge. He teaches and supervises police students from across the world on the Cambridge Police Executive Programme. His research is focused on randomised controlled trials in policing and on the field testing of “offender desistance policing”. From 2010-2014 he managed the research programme into “Operation Turning Point” in Birmingham which has just been recommended for national implementation by the Lammy Review. He has authored books and papers on police ethics, police leadership, diversion, police science (with David Weisburd) and the Cambridge Crime Harm Index (with Lawrence Sherman and Eleanor Neyroud).

He was a police officer for more than 30 years, serving in Hampshire, West Mercia, Thames Valley (as Chief Constable) and the National Policing Improvement Agency (as CEO). In 2010, he carried out the “Review of Police Leadership and Training” which led to the establishment of the new “National College of Policing”, in 2012.

He is the Co-Chair of the Campbell Collaboration Crime and Justice Coordinating Group, a Visiting Professor at Edgehill University, a Visiting Fellow at Teesside University and Buckinghamshire New University and a Research Associate at the Oxford Centre for Criminology. He was the Vice-Chair of the Internet Watch Foundation. He was awarded the Queens Police Medal in 2004 and a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in 2011.
