Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing

New to ejournals@cambridge : Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing

From the Cambridge Centre for Evidence-Based Policing website for the journal:

“The Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing aims to further empirical research for and about policing internationally. “Evidence-Based Policing” is the systematic practice of applying research to decision-making in policing. It refers to both the body of research that can be applied to policing practice, as well as the body of research about how to apply it (in a wide range of tactical, organizational, financial, and political contexts).

“The journal will publish original research and review articles in three main areas:

“Targeting: Identifying priorities for resources based on concentrations of crime (including time, day, season, area, persons, situations, and crime types)

“Testing: Examining police practices through randomized controlled trials, systematic reviews, algorithmic forecasting, meta-analyses, and other methods.

“Tracking: Studying police actions, in relation to measured outcomes for police objectives, to evaluate their effectiveness.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.

Access Cambridge Journal of Evidence-Based Policing via the Journal Search or from the iDiscover record.
