Our fresh priorities for policing research and innovation
The new targeted priorities will be:
- Force Management Statements: Understanding Demand, led by Supt. Mark Housley (Lincs) and Dr Rowena Hill (NTU)
- Serious Organised Crime, led by DCC Chris Haward (EMSOU) and Professor Dave Walsh (DMU)
For other themes or topics, individuals are invited to discuss their thoughts with EMPAC concerning the relevance of proposed research to policing, on a case by case basis.

EMPAC remains committed to the importance of impact in research – see the EMPAC Impact Capacity Rating – click here to access: EMPAC IMPACT CAPACITY RATING. This helps fine tune how research is developed for usefulness and application as well as on what particular policing priority topic. EMPAC too retains its strong media partner in Policing Professional, the UK’s largest selling policing publication with both a print and digital reach monthly of 50,000 readers, to help with communicating ideas for practitioners to use in the workplace. EMPAC doesn’t just want to encourage good ideas it wants to see them used!
EMPAC meetings are hosted at the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office, at Police and Fire HQ, Ripley, Derbyshire, DE5 3RS. 2019 meetings have now concluded and the next meeting, in early 2020, will be notified on the EMPAC web in due course.
