    Researcher required: Community Toolkit for Monitoring the Police

    Researcher required by Netpol to develop a Community Toolkit for Monitoring the Police
    The position is commissioned as a short-term project on a consultancy basis for the equivalent of around 125 hours of work (with completion no later than Thursday 28 February 2019) and will pay £2000.

    Policing intended to maintain public order is invariably at its most coercive and aggressive on the streets and in communities that society stigmatises as “at risk of disorder”, which are often policed differently on the base of class, gender and race or ethnicity.

    Netpol has secured a small grant to begin to help community groups establish their own local independent police monitoring initiatives, which can start to document and challenge racist, violent or confrontational policing.

    Our immediate aim is to develop and publish (online initially and eventually in print) a ‘toolkit’ of resources to support groups who wish to actively monitor or campaign around policing issues in their communities (whether geographic, ethnic, issue-based or cultural).

    It is anticipated that the toolkit will include some or all of the following:

    • using available statistical information to monitor trends in policing;
    • running workshops on police monitoring strategies
    • supporting individuals through the police complaints process and civil actions against the police;
    • engagement with elected representatives;
    • building relationships with solicitors;
    • creating effective rights education strategies;
    • mounting effective campaigns;
    • the ethics of casework;
    • challenges around setting up an ‘emergency hotline’;
    • how to protect a local monitoring project’s independence.
    We aim to ensure that the toolkit can be adapted for use by different groups who wish to monitor specific aspects of policing (such as police responses to domestic violence) as well as those who are concerned with the policing of a particular community or locality.

    We are looking for an enthusiastic, committed researcher/campaigner who can undertake the groundwork of researching, collating and writing a draft of the Toolkit, ready for online publication. The ideal person will have:

    • excellent research and written skills
    • the ability to engage with and interview individuals and organisations with extensive experience in police monitoring projects, including those with experience of providing practical casework support and those engaged in successful campaigning around issues of discrimination in policing.
    • the ability to gather, collate and prioritise information and turn it into a format that is accessible to a wider audience.
    Please send a copy of your CV along with a short statement (around 300 words) explaining why you have the necessary skills and experience for this commission and outlining your availability, to by WEDNESDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2018

    There's an assistant editor maternity cover role coming up at ours to be my dogsbody, I mean assistant, based in Westminster. It's not actually covering someone on leave - my manager is covering the person on leave and I'm partially covering my my manager, so we need another person to fill the gaps for 6-9 months, especially as my co-editor is unwell and unlikely to return to work full time in the foreseeable.

    It would suit someone with some editorial experience who would like a bit more, working on journals in the built environment, though no knowledge of the field required. Duties likely include being asked to follow up commissioning leads and develop articles, editing the content commissioned and possibly assisting with subediting on any of the journals if the subeditor is snowed under or away and so forth. Might also suit an editorial freelancer looking for a few months' solid income. I'll also be honest, I think there's a fair chance my co-editor will have to retire on health grounds in the next six months, and if so, whoever takes this role could well end up a full editor if they're good at it.

    It's a relaxed, low-stress (on the whole) environment, though we are going through a lot of change in the next year, for example we're being moved to a new part of the organisation, which should be very good for the team as it means we'll actually have a senior manager whose job is relevant to what we do!
