In terms of her subject, Jill’s teaching interests include, Theories of Crime, Victimology, Gender and Penology, and she has done research about CCTV, Voluntary Police Support Officers and Gender based Violence. In her spare time, Jill is a keen runner and mountain biker and has completed a number of marathons and ultra runs as well as having a go at several triathlons.
