Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $300,000)

The applicant proposes a two-prong approach to continue the development of knowledge and its translation into the policing profession. First, the applicant proposes to complete a gap analysis over the course of stakeholder meetings to identify current needs for additional research, translational challenges, and effective strategies to replicate successful implementation. Second, the applicant proposes to oversee stakeholder engagement activities to help prioritize the creation of new knowledge and implementation support.

Additionally, the applicant proposes to provide technical support to law enforcement agencies and practitioners to improve receptivity of research and support its translation into policy and practice. The organization is well-situated to encourage endorsement of this approach by a law enforcement agency’s chief executive and to develop skilled staff to operationalize evidence-based policing. Specifically, applicant proposes to integrate LEADS Scholars into executive leadership and development training to prepare them for executive positions in law enforcement. Applicant will also develop and implement a mentorship program, continue current support of the LEADS Scholars program through integration at the Annual Conference, and provide technical support to allow for an internet-based network of current Scholars and alumni.

The IACP will continue their current work to support LEADS Scholars through their Annual Conference (scheduled for October 2019). The IACP is ideally situated to provide LEADS Scholars with connectivity to the larger policing community and provide the professional development essential to the success of the LEADS program.

Specifically, IACP will: Continue to host and facilitate the LEADS Community of Practice through the Higher Logic Platform, as well as develop and maintain a compendium of scholar projects, skills, and research interests (through Higher Logic); Continue to integrate LEADS Scholars in existing IACP efforts and opportunities, such as the Research Advisory Committee (RAC) and the newly developed IACP research section; Continue to explore the utility and possible implementation of a mentorship program between new Scholars and alumni; Oversee LEADS professional development activities, including connectivity with existing IACP training, development, and delivery of novel LEADS-focused training, connectivity with other relevant resources, integration into the IACP Research Section, and development of a professional development panel for the LEADS Summer session.
