Police Research Unit Annual Policing Lecture: ‘Policing should be fair and equal for all. So why isn’t it?’ – Chief Constable Andy Cooke QPM, Merseyside Police

The Police Research Unit in the Department of Law and Criminology hosts an annual public lecture in policing. Now in its fourth year, we welcome Chief Constable Andy Cooke who will be considering vital issues of fairness and equality in policing.

Chief Constable Andy Cooke joined Merseyside Police in 1985 having obtained an Honours Degree in Politics from Nottingham University. He has served as a Detective at every rank. Andy spent four years in Lancashire Constabulary as Assistant Chief Constable, returning to Merseyside in 2012. In July 2016 he was appointed Chief Constable of Merseyside Police and in 2017 took over as National Police Chiefs’ Council Head of Serious and Organised Crime. In 2014 he was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal.

This public lecture is organised by the Police Research Unit, and supported by the Institute for Public Policy and Professional Practice (I4P).  This is Edge Hill University’s fourth Annual Policing Lecture and takes place at Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk Campus.
