Dr Michael McManus
On leaving the Royal Navy (Fleet Air Arm) in 1971, I served as a police officer in Durham Constabulary until 1999. While serving as a police officer I obtained a BA (Hons) in Criminal Justice Studies from the University of Northumbria, was awarded a Bramshill Fellowship with the National Police College at Bramshill and a Ph.D. (Private Policing in Public Places) from the University of Durham. On retirement from the police service I was invited by the School of Applied Social Sciences to teach on the MA Course in Criminal Justice Studies and later the BA Course in Criminology where I taught and coordinated the Policing and Police Module. I have been awarded the Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and a Fellowship with the Higher Education Academy.
As an operational police officer with various roles and responsibilities over many years, in particular CID, I hope to bring some practical knowledge and experiences to the teaching of criminology at the School of Applied Social Sciences.
