Evidence-Based Policing Network 

Translating Policing Research into Practice

The Evidence-based Policing (EBP) Network, housed within the Center for Criminology & Public Policy, India, seeks to make scientific research a key component in decisions about policing policy and practice. EBP Network carries out this mission by conducting rigorous evaluation of policing strategies through researcher-practitioner collaboration and facilitating the use and translation of research into daily practice of police agencies.

The core aims of the Evidence-Based Policing Network are to:

  • prevent crime and improve citizen trust and confidence in the police;
  • advance theory, knowledge and practice in policing through rigorous research and evaluation;
  • facilitate dialogue and build partnerships among scholars, practitioners, policy makers, and students interested in policing;
  • foster opportunities for practical engagement with policy implementation;
  • advance understanding and appreciation of the contemporary policing research in India and wider international environment.

To achieve these aims, the Network will engage in activities that include:

  • organizing and hosting conferences, seminars, policy round-tables;
  • disseminate information through its newsletter and scholarly publications;
  • responding to policy consultations.
