CATs has been successful in a new grant. This was written by Jeffrey DeMarco for the Police Knowledge Fund and concerns evaluation of the Volunteer Police Cadet programme. This seeks to engage teenagers and reduce rates of antisocial behaviour. Julia Davidson is PI and Jeffrey and Toni Bifulco are Co-Is. Jeffrey studied this group (and others) when devising his Trust in Authority Questionnaire (TAQ) for his PhD (which Toni supervised at RHUL) and this is a really good operational use of it.
The grant includes underpinning the cadet group so is for 1.2m. The evaluation part to Mdx is for £350K over the 2 years, split between Criminology and Psychology.
