This webinar covered definitions, justifications and alternatives to evidence-based policing (EBP). The webinar discussed the evidence-itself, summarizing what we know about police interventions and their crime prevention and reduction effects. Attendees learned the types of changes and infrastructure-building police agencies need to make to be more receptive to information, analysis, and research, as well as suggestions on improving leadership in this area.
