|Areas of expertise||
I am a policing historian specialising in the history of urban policing, with a primary focus on Ireland, colonial Australia and Canada. I am particularly interested in the impact of Irish policing experience on the development of colonial policing models, both state and municipal. Currently, I am investigating continuity of service experience of ex-policemen in Ireland and in the colony, if and how their previous policing experiences in either urban or rural settings shaped these men’s colonial police careers based on their transfers and service histories.
