Author Biography - Lesley Noaks

Dr Noaks' work is interdisciplinary which is reflected in her appointment as a lecturer in Criminology and Social Work. Throughout her academic career Policing has been a major strand of her research interest. This culminated in PhD research undertaken in the period 1996-2000. The focus of this doctoral research was the movement in England and Wales towards privatisation of security and the impact of such developments on citizen's perception of risk. The research explores the extent to which commodification of security represents a fundamental shift in residents' experience of social control. This work has been successfully disseminated through international publications (see projects) and conferences. It is regarded as an important piece of work that addresses a key 'knowledge gap' in citizen's experience of plural policing. I joined the School of Law in 2005 having previously held academic posts at the University of Kent, Cardiff University, University of Wales, Bangor and the University of Cambridge. I also spent a period of time in the late 1990s on secondment to the National Assembly for Wales to refocus their drug policy. I am currently one of two Deputy Directors of the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies and Programme Manager for the undergraduate degree, BA Criminal Justice and Criminology.
