The Cumberland Lodge Report, Understanding and Policing Gangs, explores the attraction to gangs, to improve public understanding and inform approaches to policing them more effectively.

It draws on the wisdom and experience of a cross-sector delegation of police officers, academics and researchers, non-governmental organisations, policymakers and practitioners, who attended a three-day conference at Cumberland Lodge in June 2019. This was the 38th annual Police Conference to take place at Cumberland Lodge.

The key themes and best-practice recommendations that emerged from our independent research and roundtable conference were reviewed and refined at an expert consultation involving diverse conference representatives and further specialists in the field, in October 2019.
