NIRO Knowledge – Episode 8

Lorna Ferguson

Lorna Ferguson is a Ph.D. student in the Sociology department at the University of Western Ontario, Canada and is the Director of Operations for the Canadian Society of Evidence-Based Policing (CAN-SEBP). Lorna’s current research focuses on evidence-based policy, policing, and missing persons. Specifically, she examines police responses to missing by conducting interviews with police personnel from across Canada – missing persons coordinators, Search and Rescue members, police detectives, frontline officers, with the hope of filling in knowledge gaps on ‘what works’ ‘what doesn’t work’ and ‘what we still don’t know’ in terms of how to most effectively and efficiently response to missing person reports.
