2 pm, 17 November at the Residents Gardens: Talk by Jenny Fleming: ‘Being Professional, discretion and accountability

Being Professional, discretion and accountability. Talk by Jenny Fleming, Professor of Criminology, University of Southampton

2 pm, November 17th at the Pavilion, Portswood Residents Gardens, Abbotts Way.

Jenny is Australian and took up her present post in 2012. She says “My research is interdisciplinary, drawing together the specialist areas of criminology and police studies with the more general concerns of public administration and public policy. I have worked on a range of substantive issues including: ……..the provision of criminal justice services to the mentally ill; the policing of anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related violence in and around licensed premises, police management of adult sexual assault, the politics of law and order and the politics of trust and confidence in police services.”At a time when increasing public demonstrations attempt to influence executives and legislators throughout the world, the police are faced with difficult decisions. How do they and should they react? It will be interesting to hear what Jenny has to say.
