Policed The Beat: Policing Crowds

We’re joined by Prof Clifford Stott of Keele University, a world leading researcher on crowd psychology who has long been involved in advising police forces internationally on the policing of crowds, particularly around football hooliganism. Reflecting on what happened in Dublin this weekend, he explains why it is essential we leave moralising at the door, engage with the underlying issues, and really carefully reflect on how the police action can potentially descalate or exacerbate a crowd situation. This is something An Garda Síochána, city councils and the government need to engage with immediately.
