The Future of Evidence-Based Research in Policing: Interview with Police Research Foundation Executive Director

CACP Research Foundation

Public confidence in policing depends on effective, evidence-based strategies and practice. Police leaders, policy makers and academics recognize that Canadian policing needs a system-wide transformation rather than incremental adjustment. Credible research plays a pivotal role in that transformation.

The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Research Foundation (CACP RF) is a registered charitable foundation that works to make evidence-based research an integral part of Canadian policing. Aligned with the CACP, the CACP RF promotes the creation, use and sharing of collaborative research that results in better policing decisions so that Canadian communities continue to thrive.

The 2017 conference will focus on practical, evidence-based and potentially transformational strategies for public and community safety.
