2011 Evidence-Based Policing Workshop
The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP) at George Mason University, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, hosted a one-day executive leadership training session on August 15, 2011 on “Evidence-Based Policing and Police Leadership.” The purpose of this workshop was to provide police leaders access to specialized training on definitions, concrete examples, and concerns and challenges of evidence-based policing. This successful event drew participants from 30 police agencies and five research groups. The video-taped presentations, the workbook provided to participants, and extra resources are presented to the law enforcement community on this page. We welcome your suggestions and comments at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Special thanks to Synthesis Multimedia Productions for videotaping the presentations.
