The exchange of information between the police and community partner organisations forms a core aspect of effective policing and community service provision. However, this must be governed by sets of legislative and organisational rules, or policies.
This is a three year PhD award from the SIPR (Scottish Institute for Policing Research) and focuses on creating new models for information sharing between the police and their community partners.
