Advisory group and reference panel

The people who helped to develop our overview of "What works in policing to reduce crime".


The academic advisory group, chaired by Emeritus Professor Sir Anthony Bottoms, helped to define the scope of the review; suggested text for inclusion; provided detailed and thoughtful comments; and quality-assured numerous drafts and the final product.
