EMPAC has had considerable success in the past promoting and developing Fellows, to encourage practitioner research. Now, EMPAC has appointed the first of its Honorary Senior Research Fellows to help support our wider networks and to accelerate policing innovation, using proven experts in their field.
Senior Research Impact Fellow Dave Hill
Dave is a Senior Research Impact Fellow with EMPAC – meaning his particular focus is all about the ‘so what’ of research and how research findings make an applied difference.
Psychology graduate Dave Hill has a long history with EMPAC – he was EMPAC Director for a period, seconded as a Northampshire Police Superintendent. Before Northamptonshire Police, Dave served with the Ministry of Defence Police.
EMPAC now looks forward to working with Dave particularly around his specialist expertise in change management and organisational development; topics that Dave is actively working on with the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU), as part of Dave’s Visiting Fellowship with the University of Northampton’s Institute for Public Safety Crime and Justice (IPSCJ). .
Dave is in a strong position to both conduct new research and translate existing research to inform professional practice – and we welcome him!
Watch out for upcoming events led by our Fellows.
