How do we find what works to prevent crime and improve citizen trust and confidence in the police? One approach is to use research to evaluate the effectiveness of police tactics in accomplishing both these goals. JTIC is partnering with the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing to cull the resources that agencies can use to develop strategies for their jurisdictions.
The Value of Research Data to Guide Policing Strategy
Evidence-Based Policing uses research findings to guide which strategies are best suited to reduce crime in the communities they serve while maintaining the public’s trust. This is accomplished by accessing the ample supply of recognized research on the effectiveness of policing strategies to address common policing challenges, and then translating that research to guide the everyday tactics used by law enforcement agencies.
