It marks an important milestone in the developing relationship between the two universities and sets the stage for exciting academic collaborations.

Rutgers University is renowned as one of America's highest-ranked and most diverse public research universities. By forging this partnership, both Staffordshire University and Rutgers’ Miller Centre on Policing and Community Resilience aim to share expertise and create opportunities for joint initiatives in areas of mutual interest.

Professor Kevin Hetherington, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Staffordshire University, said: "The collaboration with Rutgers University represents a significant step forward in our commitment to fostering global academic partnerships. We are excited about the potential for knowledge exchange, research collaboration, and staff development opportunities that this collaboration brings."

The proposed developments include exploring collaborative projects between the Miller Centre and the Staffordshire University's Institute of Policing. This partnership will offer chances to exchange best practices, enhance educational and training processes, and develop evidence-based solutions to challenges in the field of policing.

The Miller Centre is recognised for integrating research and evidence-based best practices into various aspects of policing, education, and training. The Centre’s mission aligns closely with Staffordshire University's Institute of Policing.

Dr Nicholas Howe, Director of Staffordshire University's Institute of Policing, commented: "The new Memorandum of Understanding links both the Institute of Policing with the esteemed Miller Centre at Rutgers University and presents us with greater opportunities to collaborate and share vast amounts of experience between the organisations.”

“There’s an immense amount of knowledge and experience within both the Institute of Policing and Rutgers University’s Miller Centre, we are very excited about the potential of this partnership. We have an opportunity now to share the experience of staff from two different policing practices, to collaborate on joint research projects, and to potentially see the development of a staff exchange programme.”

John J. Farmer, Jr., Director of Rutgers’ Miller Centre and the Eagleton Institute of Politics, added: “We look forward to ongoing engagement with our distinguished colleagues at Staffordshire University to share lessons learned and engage in collaborative research in areas of critical importance to law enforcement and policing.”
