Project Bluestone combines academic learning with professional practice and brings together leading academics from across the UK to work alongside police officers. CPRL are leading on pillar 4 - the role of learning and development and officer wellbeing in rape investigation which seeks to explore the relationship between the learning delivered at Avon and Somerset for rape investigators, their developmental requirements and officer wellbeing.
Working across five different workstreams, the project aims to help tighten the grip on offenders and address the falling conviction rates for rape and sexual offences. The five workstreams are:
Under this workstream we aim to improve the learning process by using iterative learning, blended learning models and reflective practice. Officers' wellbeing is also explored.
