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.
