Dr Jo Turner

  • Job title: Head Of Department - Associate Professor
  • Department: School of Law, Policing and Forensics

Background

I am the Head of Department for Criminology, Policing and Forensic Science and am also an Associate Professor of Criminology.

I joined Staffordshire University in August 2017, having worked previously at the University of Chester where I was a Senior Lecturer in Criminology and the Criminology Programme Leader.

I have extensive experience teaching Criminology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and continue to contribute to the teaching of Criminology. I am also an external examiner for Criminology at Hertfordshire University and UWE.

I am an active researcher, researching various aspects of both Crime History and contemporary Criminology. I currently supervise several doctoral candidates.

Outside academia, I was appointed as Justice of the Peace for the North Staffordshire Local Justice Area in April 2015 and currently sit on the Magistrates’ Association Adult Court Policy Committee.
