Policing crowds without force

Dr. Clifford Stott was recently awarded the “Outstanding Impact in Public Policy” Award by the Economic and Social Research Council.

He was awarded the prize and financial support for his work on the development of Liaison Officers in the UK; units whose aim is helping police manage the potential for conflict in crowds while facilitating people’s rights to protest through dialogue and negotiation.

ESRC produced a short a video to explore and promote the benefits of the project.
