The East Midlands Policing Academic Collaboration (EMPAC) combines the best of academic research and professional policing insight to drive improvement and innovation in policing in the East Midlands and beyond.

Comprised of five police forces, Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU)  and eight regional universities, EMPAC is all about collaborative working. As a social laboratory, we bring together policing and university researchers, to drive innovation and improve policing.

Whether you are a practitioner just starting out, an experienced policing professional, a junior researcher or a professor we want to work with you.

Get involved – be a part of research and innovation in policing.
