Callum Tipple

Senior Policy Analyst


Callum specialises in exploring how developments in crime and justice affect different communities and individuals, with an interest in technology, violence, and organised crime. Before joining Crest, he authored reports on immigration and social and economic division for the think tank Global Future.


With qualitative and quantitative experience in the think-tank and consultancy sectors, Callum is committed to developing evidence-driven policy solutions to the most pressing issues in criminal justice.


Having written and advised key stakeholders on immigration and regional policy, Callum understands how criminal justice intersects with the broad spectrum of public policy issues that affect the day-to-day lives of citizens. He is passionate about understanding and responding to new and emerging threats, and preventing crime from entrenching social and economic division.


In his free time, Callum enjoys writing, playing tennis, and attending the theatre. He speaks fluent Spanish, and is beginning to study Catalan.
