Access to BAPCO members for academic research

BAPCO's membership is made up of over 1300 public safety professionals including emergency services leaders and commercial assosciates.  Academic members will be able to approach the membership for assistance in research projects and advice.

There are set request deadlines throughout the year which the applicant needs to consider. Only one request per quarter will be granted and this will be communicated to the BAPCO membership via email and social media.

The BAPCO Executive Committee will make a final selection at each quarter's Exec Meeting.

The request deadlines will be:

  • 31st March
  • 30th June
  • 30th September
  • 31st December

Requests need to be emailed to for the attention of the Membership and Administration Manager, Laura Gibson.
