Laura is a renowned international expert on domestic violence, stalking, sexual violence and risk assessment. After a decade of analysing violent crime at New Scotland Yard Laura became the violence adviser to the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC).

Laura is Founder of Paladin, the world’s first National Stalking Advocacy Service. Paladin was set up following the highly successful All Party Parliamentary Stalking Law Reform Campaign spearheaded by Laura, which led to stalking becoming a criminal offence in 2012. More recently Laura spearheaded the Domestic Violence Law Reform Campaign to criminalise coercive control. Laura helped draft the new law and the statutory guidance and developed and delivered the first training on the new law in the UK.

Laura was head of the Violent Crime and Intelligence Analysis Unit in the Metropolitan Police Service and continues to advise NPCC, the College of Policing, the Home Office and police services across the UK on public protection.

Laura developed the Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Harassment and Honour based violence (DASH 2009-2016) Risk Identification, Assessment and Management Model on behalf of NPCC and in partnership with Safer Lives. (
