Dr Pauline Ramshaw is a senior lecturer in criminology with particular interests in police and policing. Her PhD was an ethnographic study of operational community policing and she has published in the area of front line policing in international peer reviewed journals including Policing and Society and Police Practice and Research.
Pauline has also been involved the development of policing and education programmes on a national and international level. She was part of the team that developed the first foundation degree in police studies for newly recruited police officers with Cleveland Police in 2004. She also provided consultancy and mentoring to colleagues at the Kigali Institute of Education, the National University of Rwanda and the Rwandan National Police in 2007 on a capacity building project for degree-level initial police training in Rwanda, funded by the British Council.
In addition to policing and social control, Pauline’s other teaching interests include punishment and prison, and she is currently developing work experience placements for criminology and sociology students in the north east region.
Pauline is also a member of the British Society of Criminology, the Teesside Centre for Realist Criminology and the BSC Policing Network.
She is currently supervising PhD students and would welcome queries for potential PhD applicants with an interest in community/neighbourhood policing, and gender and policing.
