About Crest

Crest Advisory is an independent consultancy, focused on criminal justice and policing. We help clients to develop and to communicate the strategies and insights they need to help build safer communities. We provide analytical, policy and public affairs support to criminal justice agencies and to their partners in the private and voluntary sectors. With expertise and experience of Government, the media and service delivery, we help clients to navigate change and achieve exceptional outcomes.

Why are we different?

Crest Advisory is the UK’s only consultancy dedicated to criminal justice strategy and communications. Our team are experts in data, governance, policy and communications, and have unparalleled experience in applying these skills to criminal justice and policing. Because we are specialists in the sector, we give clients tailored advice and support, not generic consultancy solutions.

Who we work with

Crest Advisory works with local and national criminal justice bodies, police and crime commissioners, police forces, probation providers, commercial suppliers of services to the justice sector and think tanks. We also support public inquiries, inquests and charities. With a team based across the UK, we are able to work alongside you in your communities.
