Co-production is an increasingly important concept for describing how people from different backgrounds work together to produce a solution to a shared problem. Last week UPSI brought together experts from across the academy, government departments, the police, voluntary sector and industry to examine the state-of-the-art in relation to the co-production of social control. The seminar was sponsored by the ESRC and AHRC as part of their 'Connected Communities' programme.
What impact will the government’s ‘big society’ have on policing? In an article published in Police Review Martin Innes says two pilot projects in Cardiff shows the police service what the government wants officers to do and how effective it can be.
