About us

Founded in 2019, the Criminal Justice Research Network (CJRN) is a formal collaboration of researchers, practitioners and academics working in the field of criminal justice. The focus is on knowledge exchange, practice change, research collaboration and student engagement.

The CJRN comprises experts from the University of Winchester’s Centre for Forensic and Investigative Psychology (CFIP), our Institute of Policing and Criminology experts, who will be working alongside colleagues from other universities and criminal justice organisations.

Key aims:

  • Providing mutual understanding of current practices
  • Sharing knowledge of relevant research and expertise
  • Supporting evidence-based change in practice
  • Enabling co-production of practice-informed research (collaborating on design, sharing data and findings)
  • Engaging students in practice-led research
  • Facilitating practitioner- and academic-supported student research

The CJRN will accomplish these aims by hosting a variety of annual events for assisting research development and research and knowledge exchange.

Get involved

The next meeting of the CJRN will take place on 20 November 2019 at 13.00 at the University of Winchester. If you are an academic, practitioner or researcher working in the criminal justice field and are interested in joining the CJRN, or if you would like further information about the network, please email Dr Genevieve Waterhouse or Dr Wendy Kneller, CFIP Conveners.
