Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $500,000)
This program will fill a critical gap in evidence-based policing by providing law enforcement officers the skills they need to identify, interpret, apply, and generate research on what works and what matters in policing. This project will culminate in the development and delivery of training and education curricula on evidence-based policing, to be made available both to sworn law enforcement officers and academic partners seeking to build sustainable researcher/police partnerships. The project will also include a survey of existing training offerings and the establishment of an advisory board to guide curricula development.
Note: This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law, and complies with Part 200 Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR
