Stan is a highly experienced and accomplished Strategic Consultant with 30 years of experience in law enforcement. He has a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing the criminal justice system and wider partners and is committed to finding innovative solutions to combat transnational threats, reduce violence and inequality, and increase public safety.

Previously the Director of the Thames Valley Violence Reduction Unit, Stan is currently the lead for Risk Technology within the National Police Chiefs’ Council for the UK. Stan is spearheading the development and implementation of a Common Data Platform for information sharing across sectors.

Stan is a Professor at Keele University, and a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Exeter.  He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a Senior Associate Fellow with the Police Foundation, a Fellow of the Global Law Enforcement and Public Health Association, alongside his role as an ADR UK Ambassador.  These collaborations provide an excellent basis for his passions - developing public health approaches in policing and making the best use of public data for public good.

“If we are to tackle societal problems through addressing their root causes by taking a public health approach, we need a robust understanding and insight into the complex risk factors which exist. We need to be working across multi-agency organisational boundaries and our activity has to be built upon evidence and data-led approaches, but with public confidence. 

“It is in this context that I am proud to be part of the wider ADR UK network and represent its mission as an Ambassador, especially for those working in criminal justice and public safety organisations. 

“We have to further develop our ability to deliver accurate insight, continue to commission high quality research and to use data in a way that enhances public value and promotes the use of data for public good. Ultimately, our use of data can help keep our communities safe and help people thrive.”
