Keep up to date with crime in the news

Want to keep up to date with the big crime-related stories that are hitting the news? The Centre for Crime and Justice Studies at King's College London produces handy summaries of all the crime stories that are occupying the tabloid and broadsheet media, as well as the big press releases on topics of criminological interest.
For example, today's bulletin includes the information behind headlines such as`Lords say 42 day law will put fair trials at risk', 'Bad dads blamed on lads' mags', `Go easier on inmates, prison told (and try using their first names)', `Pensioner who strangled wife is sentenced to one year pub ban',`I will send violent drinkers to jail, says judge', and `Highway robbers: Revenue from speeding tickets has almost quadrupled to £200 a minute since Labour came to power'.
You can subscribe (for free!) to receive the bulletin on either a daily or monthly basis. Visit the website below to join up.
