Dr Stanislas was the Senior Policy Advisor for Bedfordshire Police for strategic development and organisational performance for over a decade, and the first person in the country employed in this capacity by a British police service. His primary role was supporting the Chief Constable and his senior command team to develop effective strategies. Dr Stanislas’s success in this role led to Her Majesties Inspectorate of the Constabulary (Home Office) nominating him to become an instructor at the prestigious Bramshill Police Staff College, where he taught on the Senior Command and Commonwealth Senior Command Course for chief officers.

Dr Stanislas currently is the leader of the Contemporary Issues in Police and Security Leadership and Management Programme run by De Montfort University’s Community and Criminal Justice Department in the UK. He has written numerous publications which include his most recent book Public Corruption, Regional and National Perspectives on Procurement Fraud co-authored with Professor Petter Gottschalk (Norway) published by Taylor Francis. He also wrote the bestselling International Perspectives on Police Education and Training. This text has recently been translated in Turkish due to the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (Sweden), who is leading police and criminal justice reform in Turkey. Dr Stanislas’ book is a core text in the training of the Turkish police and criminal justice professionals.
