What is the Institute for Public Safety Crime and Justice?

The Institute for Public Safety, Crime and Justice (IPSCJ) is a joint venture between the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire and the University of Northampton. It seeks to bring together academic research and evidence with practice, training and development across agencies. The institute aims to be nationally and internationally recognised for high quality academic contributions to crime prevention, crime science and criminal justice practice.

IPSCJ endeavours to understand victim, witness and service user experiences as well as the priorities of the wider community, through analysis of crime issues and agency activity. This informs further exploration of criminal justice and public safety interventions and creates links between what works in theory and in practice.

The institute is made up of highly experienced researchers, analysts and trainers. They are supported by associates; expert practitioners in the field who bring specialist skills in areas such as evaluation, criminal justice management and victim-centred approaches.

Areas of interest

The work of the Institute is delivered through three broad thematic areas:

  • Strategic crime analysis to develop a thorough practical understanding of crime and associated issues, to support the delivery of more effective operational policing.
  • Evaluation of what works, what doesn’t work and why. This will directly inform and promote the underpinning ethos of evidence based activity.
  • Engagement activity to ensure that the views of community and practitioners are taken into account in developing responses and to promote the delivery of effective services.
