Welcome to the Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame

The Hall recognizes innovative law enforcement practitioners who have been central to the implementation of a high quality research program in their agency and also are relentless champions of institutionalizing evidence-based practices. These leaders of evidence-based policing not only help make high-quality police scholarship possible but also advance significant reforms in policing by utilizing science in their decision making.

Membership Requirements

  • Nominees must be or have been a member of a law enforcement agency, either as a sworn officer or civilian employee; and
  • Nominees must have been central to the implementation of documented, rigorous scientific research or analysis in their affiliated agency; and
  • Nominees must show a significant record of incorporating and translating evidence-based practices into their agency. Such a record of practice might also include greater incorporation of science and scientific processes in decision making or training.

Nomination Instructions

The next deadline for nominations is March 1, 2020. Selection decisions are made by a committee that includes the Director of CEBCP, two senior fellows, and one Hall of Fame member. Contributions to support the Hall of Fame Awards and other initiatives of the CEBCP can be made through our 100K for 10 Campaign.
