Knowledge Exchange

N8 PRP funded a number of collaborative projects and events to support Knowledge Exchange across the partnership, resulting in significant impact on policy and practice. 

Empowering Data Specialists in Policing

In 2018 and 2019, the N8 PRP’s Data Analytics and Training and Learning strands delivered an ambitious Continuous Professional Development programme to two cohorts from 11 North of England forces.  The programme sought to make a practical step towards the digital transformation of policing by providing a foundation in essential data science methods and emergent technologies in machine learning and predictive analytics. Two reports were produced, one evaluating the programme short after delivery and a second evaluating the impact of the programme a year later. Further work is planned in this area.
