About Emma Price

Over the past four years I have taught on modules as a visiting lecturer on the history of the criminal justice system, representations of crime, animal and wildlife harm, international injustice and crime prevention and community safety. I am in the process of completing my doctoral studies, which focus on community services provided by third sector organisations to improve the mental health and well-being of individuals in contact with the criminal justice system.


My area of research and teaching expertise is crimes committed by mentally disordered individuals, treatment services for mentally vulnerable individuals in all criminal justice agencies and the role of third sector organisations in delivering criminal justice services.

Published Work
