Guest Speakers Biography:

Dr. Laura Huey is the Director of the Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing (CAN-SEBP). She will open the workshop with a presentation on the “The Principles of Evidence Based Policing” and explain how a broader view of “EBP” helps us to create cultures of change. Laura is also a Professor of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario where her primary areas of research are in the fields of policing, mental health and countering violent extremism. Laura also contributes to research as a Board Member of the Smart Cybersecurity Network (SERENE-RISC); a Research Fellow with the London Police Service; a Member of the Canadian Assn. of Police Governance Research & Policy Committee; a University Representative and Senior Researcher with The Canadian Network on Terrorism, Security and Society.

Acting Chief Constable Alex Murray graduated from Birmingham University in 1996 and joined West Midlands Police, where he worked in investigative and uniform roles in the cities Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton. As a uniformed officer and supervisor he developed violent crime initiatives and community advocacy groups in local neighborhoods, as well as has worked on major drug initiatives. As a senior investigating officer, he has led complex cases and set up performance regimes that linked protective services (murder investigation) to neighborhood policing. He has extensive experience within Counter Terrorism and in 2008 graduated from Cambridge University with a Master's degree in Criminology, writing a thesis focused on understanding of police legitimacy within minority communities. Murray is currently T/ACC of West Midlands Police and the founder and chair of the Society of Evidence-Based Policing in the United Kingdom (sebp.police.uk) which aims to facilitate officers and staff using, communicating and producing the best possible evidence in policing.
