Dr Holloway-George's research aims to improve the support of autistic individuals in detention settings through changes to practice, policy and the custody environment. In 2018, she completed her PhD thesis titled 'Facilitating Access to Justice: Exploring the Experiences of Autistic Individuals Arrested and Detained in Police Custody'. This examined the difficulties that might be experienced by autistic individuals in police custody and the support they may require to enable them to participate in the police custody process effectively. Following her PhD, Dr Holloway-George has worked with the Nottinghamshire Autism Police Partnership ('NAPP') and police forces to help identify ways to improve the support of autistic people in police custody. She has helped to co-produce an improved autism training package and toolkit for custody staff, delivered autism training for custody staff and offered advice on how police forces can make their custody suites more 'autism-friendly'. Most recently, Dr Holloway-George has conducted an evaluation of the autism training and toolkit to understand how it is being used by police forces with a view to influencing the development of national neurodiversity criminal justice policy.
In 2019, Dr Holloway-George was awarded of the Future Promise award and runner up for the Outstanding Early Career Impact award as part of the ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize in recognition of the impact her research has had on the support of autistic people in police custody.
