In order to advance the science of policing, it is crucial that academics and policing professionals develop strong working relationships. In order to move further towards this goal, the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing is proud to announce strategic partnerships with the following research institutions. We encourage others in the field to partner with us so that we can assist in connecting those who provide policing services to those that study the impact and effectiveness of those programs.
The University of Cambridge, U.K.
Headed by Professor Lawrence Sherman, the Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge in England has been pivotal in the advancement of evidence-based policing. Over 50% of all senior police leaders in the United Kingdom have received training in evidence-based practices to date and several of the founding members of the ASEBP are recent graduates of the Police Executive Programme.
We recognize that successfully reducing crime and disorder in a democratic society is one of the primary goals of American Policing however, we cannot accomplish this alone. Crime is not simply a policing problem but rather a societal problem. We are proud to announce strategic partnerships with the following organizations, all dedicated to ensuring the sharing and growth of professional knowledge in order to ensure a safer community.
The Police Foundation, Washington D.C.
Since it was started in 1970, the Police Foundation has maintained its position as a leader in promoting the use of science and research in policing. The American Society of Evidence-Based Policing has benefited greatly from this mission and was formed with the generous support and counsel of Foundation President, Chief (Ret) Jim Bueermann.
Our Global Partners
The challenges of evolving policing towards an evidence-based profession are not unique to the United States however, there are many lessons that are universal within the field of criminology. We are proud to partner with our colleagues from around the world to move towards the adoption of evidence-based practices and look forward to some really awesome international conferences in the future. We’re all for increasing the focus of our profession but can just as easily discuss policing on a beach as we can back at home.
Society of Evidence-Based Policing
The UKSEBP is made up of police officers, police staff, and research professionals who aim to make evidence-based methodology part of everyday policing the UK. The goals of the society are as follows:
Aim One: Increased use of the best available research evidence to solve policing problems.
Aim Two: The production of new research evidence by police practitioners and researchers.
Aim Three: Communication of research evidence to police practitioners and the public.
Canadian Society for Evidence-Based Policing
The Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing (CAN-SEBP) was formed in April
2015. We are an association of police practitioners, academic researchers, public policy-makers and others, whose mission is to foster the creation and mobilization of quality research in order to make evidence based approaches a cornerstone in policing in Canada.
Australia / New Zealand Society of Evidence-Based Policing
The Australia & New Zealand Society of Evidence Based Policing (ANZSEBP) was formed in April 2013 in Brisbane, Australia. The ANZSEBP is a police practitioner-led Society. The mission of the ANZSEBP is to develop, disseminate and advocate for police to use scientific research (“the evidence”) to guide best practice in all aspects of policing. The ANZSEBP Chairperson serves on the Executive Board of the British Society of Evidence Based Policing, ensuring that the ANZSEBP works cooperatively with an international group of police to advance evidence based policing.
