    Implementing Evidence Based Research

    When it comes to adopting evidence based approaches, does the size of an organisation really matter?

    This practical guide brings leading police and sociology experts together to demonstrate how police forces of all sizes can successfully embed evidence based methods by using their strengths and limitations to their advantage. Drawing on experiences of policing in North America, it proposes new ways of strategising and harnessing the talents of ‘change champions’.

    Building on the authors’ widely adopted first book on evidence based policing, this is essential reading for practitioners, aspiring leaders, students and policy makers.

    Laura Huey is Professor of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario and the founder and Chair of the Advisory Council of the Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing (Can-SEBP).

    Renée J. Mitchell is Senior Police Researcher at Research Triangle Institute International and the co-founder of the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing.

    Hina Kalyal is a policy analyst at London Police Service in Ontario.

    Roger Pegram is Chief Inspector in Merseyside Police, the Vice Chair of the UK Society of Evidence Based Policing and a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge Institute of Criminology.
