Research Outputs & Interests
Andre is passionate about his perpetuating research within the Policing field, in particular, how diversity and inclusion issues can be improved within UK policing establishments. He seeks to understand how organisational culture, social networks, and police culture influences the diversity of London’s executive police officers. He has recently developed a typology entitled the “British Bobby Physiognomies” to be employed as an effective tool to aid in the holistic appreciation of why diversity within the police evolves at such an unsatisfactory pace. Andre is impassioned by the prospect of the PEQF and its potential to influence the shape of British Policing.
