Kingston Law School Research Seminar: Evaluating the specialist policing response to adult male rape survivors

Dr Joanna Jamel BA (Hons), MA (Crim), MSc. (Inv Psychol).
Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Kingston University, London.


Joanna's background is in sociology, criminology and investigative psychology which inform her research on marginalised, under-researched and underserved communities. A key focus of her previous research was on male rape within different contexts such as evaluating the specialist policing response of Sexual Offences Investigative Technique (SOIT) officers of the Metropolitan Police Service to male victims of rape; investigating the incidence of client-perpetrated sexual violence against male escorts in London, and the print media representation of male rape. She is internationally published in each of these research areas and her research findings were also disseminated to Sapphire, the Crime Academy and other police forces on request to inform their specialist training of officers.


'Evaluating the Specialist Policing Response to Adult Male Rape Survivors'

Joanna's research presentation therefore examines the role of specialist police officers such as the Sexual Offences Investigative Technique Officers of the Metropolitan Police Service in responding to rape offences. Both specialist officers and male and female rape survivors were asked about (I) the policing response to rape; (ii) procedures followed; (iii) the level of communication maintained throughout their cases and (iv) how might the police service be improved in light of their experiences.
