Personal profile

Research Interests

  • Multi-Agency Conferencing of Potentially Dangerous Offenders
  • Organisational Culture within the Criminal Justice Sector (current)


I joined the University in 1991 from the probation service. I was involved in the early development of multi-agency working for the management of potentially dangerous offenders. I later worked in a Lifer Prison (unique at the time) as a probation officer, and in a Maximum Security prison as a senior probation officer. Both these placements further developed my interest in risk, dangerousess and prisoner release. Within the university I took on a variety of roles  including head of department and director of community justice. My research and publications have predominantly focused on the roles of criminal justice practitioners in working with, assessing and supervising high risk and dangerous offenders. I have worked as a trainer with various police and probation services, organisations such as the Parole Board and spoken at gatherings in countries such as South Korea and Hong Kong. I presently work part time in th eUniversty, mainly with post-graduate and doctoral students.
