Visiting Scholar from U.K. Focuses on Volunteer Policing

Friday, January 20, 2017
Mike Frumkin and Iain Britton
College Dean Michael Frumkin with
Dr. Iain Britton

The Department of Criminal Justice welcomed Iain Britton, Ph.D., from the University of Northampton in England as a visiting scholar Jan. 5-14, 2017.

Britton is head of the Centre for Citizens in Policing in the Institute for Public Safety Crime and Justice at Northampton. He was invited to participate in the department's visiting scholar program because of his research in volunteerism in policing.

While in Central Florida, Britton studied volunteer policing at the Orange County Sheriff's Office. He spent much of his time in interviews with volunteers and managers at the agency in cooperation with Ross Wolf, associate dean and associate professor of criminal justice.

The Centre for Citizens in Policing at Northampton is currently undertaking a large-scale research and translation program across special constables and police support volunteers in England and Wales. Britton's recent research has involved working in several police forces in the United Kingdom, including the Devon and Cornwall, Dorset, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Greater Manchester Police.

Britton is involved in other projects across England and Wales as well, including a national survey of those who volunteer in policing, a national data-benchmarking exercise and a national case-study exercise.

Britton is a member of and academic lead for the England and Wales Citizens in Policing Board. He is enthusiastic about the centre developing international work across the field of police volunteering and excited about the developing partnership with UCF.

Following his visit, Britton shared some of his observations in " Specials Relationship? What UK Policing Can Learn from US Reserve Deputies" - Policing Insight, Jan. 28, 2017

Britton has worked in senior roles across the criminal justice system. He launched his career as a probation officer 20 years ago and went on to hold leadership roles in the areas of probation, drug treatment and youth-offending, as well as in policing. Prior to joining the centre, he was a chief executive leading the Northamptonshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
