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. Listen to Cynthia Lum's podcast on "What is Evidence-Based Policing" here.

One central part of this effort is the Evidence-Based Policing Matrix and evidence-based policing tools known as the Matrix Demonstration Projects, developed by Lum and Koper.
