Jacky Burrows BSc (Hons), BA (Hons), DipPS, MSc , PgCLTHE, FHEA

Lecturer In Criminology


I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2014 as a lecturer in criminology and have taught on the undergraduate criminology programme, the probation officer training course, and a bespoke module for volunteers working with sexual offenders.

  • About

    Prior to this, I spent more than a decade working in criminal justice-related posts including roles in probation approved premises (hostels) and offender management teams, and various prison psychology posts. I am trained in a variety of risk assessment tools and intervention approaches and have substantial experience of working with prisoners at risk of suicide and self-harm and the staff supporting them.

    My interests include criminal justice cultures, risk management of suicide and self-harm, probation practice issues, sex and gender, and ‘revenge porn’ (non-consensual pornography).
