What we do

As a regional partnership, N8 PRP increases capacity for all partners through shared knowledge and resources, Through our governance structure and strategic investment in knowledge exchange, research, and professional development, N8 PRP develops resilient collaborative relationships that can access external research funding, direct resources to high-priority areas, and ensure findings are shared with a wide and influential network of practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and other stakeholders.  This spans operational questions, such as how to investigate cryptocurrency, and broader questions of social justice, such as improving policing for black people.
