The New Researchers in Policing Partnership (NRiPN) aims to support new researchers who want to shape the future of policing research and have a meaningful impact on police policy and practice.

NRiPN is part of the N8 Policing Research Partnership (N8 PRP). Using our unique status as a partnership of 8 universities and 12 police forces, we champion, enable, and support policing research in the North of England. As part of that goal, we have established NRiPN.

Free to join and open to all postgraduate and early career researchers* at any university in the north of England, NRiPN will provide valuable opportunities to build a collaborative research network and shape the future of policing research.
