Our work in the areas of crime, policing and health reflects Manchester Metropolitan University’s commitment to meeting our civic responsibility to make a positive contribution to public well-being.
Big Data brings together crime, health and multiple data to help us gain a better understanding of the drivers of social problems and to identify the potential of integrated solutions.
Working closely with a growing number of crime, policing and health partners, we help organisations to improve their strategic and operational performance to achieve more with less. Using our multi-disciplinary research expertise, we provide professional support across a wide range of crime, policing and health issues.
Our approach is based on mutual learning and the co-production of research. Blending academic excellence and professional insight, we help our partners to develop better ways of working and deliver effective, efficient and legitimate solutions. We enable them to better understand a range of issues and meet the challenges of austerity and devolution.
Our team has a strong culture of ethical accountability and a real thirst for identifying ‘What Works’ through evidenced based research. We are also proud to have built strong strategic relationships with a variety of crime, policing and health partners, including police forces, the College of Policing, research councils, government the NHS and other health related organisations such as Nuffield Health and Astellas.
To support our partners and research, we have recently created a £1m state-of-the-art Crime and Well-Being Big Data Centre. So, read on to learn more about our diverse research projects and how our services could help your organisation to improve its performance and take on new challenges. We also offer a wealth of professional development and training opportunities.
