Translating Research into Practice
What works to prevent crime and improve citizen trust and confidence in the police? How can police incorporate research into their daily practice? The CEBCP’s Evidence-Based Policing Research Program focuses on generating both the supply of research (rigorous evaluations of policing strategies and tactics), and also the demand, use, and translation of research into everyday use by law enforcement agencies. One central part of this effort is the Evidence-Based Policing Matrix developed by Cynthia Lum, Christopher Koper, and Cody Telep and the related Matrix Demonstration Projects.
