About

The Forensic and Crime Research Group (FCRG), led by Dr Ross Bartels, is based in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln and is concerned with aspects of psychological functioning related to forensic and crime-related topics. The research conducted ranges from that conducted within applied settings and on forensic populations to examining individuals within the community (see video). Areas of relevance and impact include understanding offending behaviour, pre-conviction issues (e.g., testimony issues), the treatment and wellbeing of people entering and residing in secure environments, and community attitudes towards forensic-related topics (e.g., attitudes towards people who have offended).
