Sula recognised for Outstanding Contribution to Voluntary Research

We're really proud today to recognise a more unusual strand of research within the Linguistics team. WYRED Research Associate and PhD student Sula Ross was awarded an "Evidence Based Policing Award for Outstanding Contribution to Voluntary Research" by Lancashire Constabulary on 27th September, at a Research Champions Event. 

In addition to her work on WYRED and her PhD, Sula fills her train commuting time by voluntarily conducting research to help inform Lancashire Constabulary's activities. The award followed a literature review that Sula provided for the force entitled "Impact of an ageing population on future policing demand" that focused on dementia - see below for a picture of Sula in action presenting her synthesis. This work not only keeps Sula busy on long train journeys, but is invaluable to Lancashire Constabulary and the people they serve.

Following her award, Sula has been asked by Lancaster University to talk at a CPD for Policing Data and Information Specialists event in January, hosted by the N8 Policing Research Partnership.

Congratulations Sula - inspiring work!
