Advancing Evidence-Based Policing
The concept of evidence-based practice has been on the rise over the past decade, but there is still a dramatic need for more research.”
NIJ strives to support policing research that is applicable, relevant, and informative to law enforcement’s on-the-ground work.
We do this by helping officers build their own evidence base with practitioner-researcher partnerships, supporting them to building in-house research capacities, and remaining in continuous dialog with organizations like the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing.
As the demand for evidence-based policy and practice rises, NIJ will follow the lead of the practitioners and front line officers, offering resources and support along the way.
