This knowledge-exchange workshop - co-sponsored by The Scottish Institute for Policing Research, The Public Policy Network and The University of Edinburgh - met to discuss current trends in public order policing and think through the lessons to be learned from existing research and policing experience. In attendance were 55 delegates from a range of organisations, including Central Scotland Police, Dumfries & Galloway Constabulary, Fife Constabulary, Grampian Police, Lothian & Borders Police, Strathclyde Police, Tayside Police, the British Transport Police, the Scottish Police College and nine UK universities. Over the course of the day there were presentations from police officers and academics that generated lively discussion on these issues and how best to implement the lessons learned.

It was co-organised locally by Hugo Gorringe ( and Michael Rosie, and administered by Tim Heilbronn. For further details see the Scottish Institute for Policing Research website.
