Like a football playbook, the Evidence-Based Policing Playbook is a working document, created by researchers and law enforcement personnel to provide tangible ideas for officers to use in patrol or specialized units for common problems that they face. The Playbook draws from the Evidence-Based Policing Matrix, CrimeSolutions.Gov, Campbell Collaboration Systematic Reviews, the Center for Problem Oriented Policing, and other knowledge. Additionally, the Playbook was created in collaboration with officers from multiple agencies to ensure that suggestions are tangible and able to be implemented in actual policing settings.


Download the working Playbook HERE. The Playbook is meant to be printed in “booklet” form so that it can be printed and folded to a half letter-page size. To print The Playbook in this way, go to your print menu in Adobe and select “Booklet”.


More plays will be added to this working document soon.
