Policing Research: If you can't find it, do it

In this video Ken Clary, a captain with the Iowa State Patrol and an NIJ Law Enforcement Advancing Data and Science (LEADS) scholar, discusses the need to implement evidence-based practices for effective policing. He discusses how law enforcement agencies and officers should start by reviewing the existing body of knowledge. If they cannot find any applicable research, Clary suggests that they consider doing the research themselves.
