He was a member of the College of Policing’s Neighbourhood Guidelines and Problem-Solving Guidelines Committees, helping to create a co-ordinated approach to evidence-based policing. Stan has a clear focus on how solutions to data and information sharing can underpin and add value to the choices made by the police, their communities and partners that adds legitimacy and builds trust.
