Would you like to be involved in a conversation about policing reform and receive £50 of shopping vouchers for participating?
You do not need any knowledge of policing to attend. You just need to be willing to listen to others’ points of view and to talk to the other participants about what they think of what they have heard.
If you would like to be involved in this research, here is what you need to know.
Dates, times and venue
The conversations will be 10:45-14:15 on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th of July at the West Indian Centre in Chapeltown, 10 Laycock Place, Leeds LS7 3JA. You will need to arrive between 10:30 and 10:40 for a prompt start at 10:45. You will need to be free to attend on both days.
People who attend on both days will receive £50 of shopping vouchers at the end of the second day.
The events will involve 12-15 participants. This means that, if more than 15 people apply, some applicants will not be able to attend. We will confirm whether or not you have been selected to participate at the earliest possible opportunity.
You must be 16 or over to attend. Sorry, no children can attend.
Lunch will be provided on both days.
You can claim travel expenses if you are able to provide a receipt and are happy to have the money paid directly into your bank account. You will need to fill in a form with your bank account details. Sorry but petrol expenses cannot be claimed.
The research is being done by the N8 Policing Research Partnership. This involves several northern universities and police forces exploring how research might help improve policing.
The University of Liverpool is leading on engaging members of the public in this work.
They are organising events where people can talk about how they think the police should deal with different types of issues affecting their communities.
They are interested to hear everyone’s opinion and also whether the group can reach any agreement.
They believe that it is important for members of the public to have the chance to think and talk about policing issues because these issues affect everyone.
Because this is a piece of research, the sessions will be audio recorded and the recordings will be analysed by the researchers. No one will be identified in the recordings or in anything that is written up afterwards.
If you agree to take part in the research and are selected, you will receive more detailed information and will be asked to give your consent for us to use the (anonymised) data they collect for the purpose of future study.
