Applications are invited for a Chair of the newly formed Policing Science Advisory Council (PSAC). PSAC is an expert committee whose members bring world-leading knowledge and experience of applying economics, engineering, social science, statistics, and the physical and life sciences to policing. The Committee works with the Policing Chief Scientific Advisor to, among other things, (a) provide independent, objective and timely scientific advice to policing on science, technology, analysis, and research matters relevant to policy and operations; (b) identify new or developing science-related opportunities and threats to policing and address these in collaboration with the CSA and/or NPCC members; and, (c) act as an ambassador for policing science and technology, fostering engagement across policing and between policing and the wider scientific community within the UK and internationally.
The committee comprises an independent Chair supported by up to 10 independent members drawn from academia and public and private sector organisations. The first task of the appointed Chair will be to support selection of the 10 members. All members are appointed in a personal capacity not as representatives of their employer or any other organisation.
You will bring significant knowledge and experience of how science, technology and innovation across the supply chain can be leveraged in support of the police mission, drawing on a background in any area of economics, engineering, mathematics, social science, or the natural sciences. You will have experience of bringing your expertise—as well as the knowledge of the wider scientific community—to bare on complex problems, often challenging established thinking and helping our teams find effective, practical solutions. You will also bring significant experience of bringing dynamic leadership to a diverse group of highly capable, experienced people. Working closely with the CSA to establish the priorities of the Committee, you will represent PSAC across government.
