A How to Guide for Police Organisations
This practical and accessible guide shows how police forces of all sizes can successfully adopt evidence based methods. Drawing on experiences of North American policing, it sets out ways for decision makers to reshape practices, strategies and organisational structures and overcome barriers to change.
Examining what makes something evidence-based and not merely evidence-informed, this book unifies the voices of police practitioners, academics, and pracademics. It provides real world examples of evidence-based police practices and how police research can be created and applied in the field.
