Principal Lecturer in the Department Of Law and Criminology, Sheffield Hallam University

I have fifteen years of experience as a policing lecturer, researcher, consultant and policy advisor. My teaching and research interests include surveillance, policing, crime prevention and criminological theory which have led to the publication of three books: ‘Policing and Criminology’ (with my Sheffield Hallam colleague, Ed Pollock), 'Understanding the Electronic Monitoring of Offenders' and 'Restorative Policing' (with Kerry Clamp).

I worked for Group 4 Securicor for three years on the UK electronic offender monitoring programme, leaving in 2001 to do a PhD on the role of surveillance technologies in criminal justice. I worked at the John Grieve Centre for Policing and Community Safety at Buckinghamshire New University between 2001 and 2006 as a research consultant and senior lecturer in policing and joined Sheffield Hallam University in January 2007 as a senior lecturer in criminology.
