New evidence-based policing resource from George Mason UniversityLeading researchers have partnered with the IACP to produce An Evidence Assessment of the Recommendations of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. This document not only helps police agencies prioritize the recommendations of the President’s Task Force based on what research has shown to work, but also highlights what else still needs to be learned through police-research partnerships.   Click here to view the report.



CPE is excited to introduce the addition of Micro-grants: Micro-Grant funding is now available for students in our Supervisory Leadership classes. These grants will allow students to implement community based projects to decrease crime, increase community policing initiatives, and assist with a variety of other evidence based community projects.  Click here to view a flyer with more information: CPE Micro-Grant Program 2016.pdf
