An academic criminologist in her first life, Stanko’s role in the Met and MOPAC is little understood to those on the outside. She will talk about data, police data, criminal justice data, criminology as insight, and challenging policy and practice.
Stanko retired from her role as Head of Evidence and Insight in April 2016. She is currently Chair of the Ministry of Justice’s Data, Evidence and Science Board, Strategic Advisor to a Home Office Police Transformation Fund project focused to uplift learning and development in policing across England and Wales and Academic Advisor to the Vulnerability and Serious Crime Programme at the College of Policing. Professor Stanko has been awarded a number of academic lifetime achievement awards, including the prestigious American Society of Criminology’s Vollmer Award (1996), recognising her outstanding influence on criminal justice practice.
