Welcome to the Evolution of American Policing
Policing is at a crossroads. For too long, we have relied on tactics and strategies based upon tradition and history alone but the time for change is now. Join us as we advocate for adopting evidence-based policing interventions to ensure that only the fairest, most efficient and effective strategies are utilized throughout Policing.
We are the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing.
The American Society of Evidence-Based Policing (ASEBP) is launching Cops 4 Communities/ Communities 4 Cops challenge (#C4C). The C4C campaign is a social media campaign that creates a media platform to house positive police contacts shown through video, picture, and written stories across relevant forms of social media, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
How can we best protect and serve?
Over the past 30 years, the crime rate in the United States has declined to historic lows. Police officers have proudly played their role within the criminal justice system by developing strategies and tactics designed to continue this trend. Despite these reductions in crime however, trust and confidence in police remains stubbornly low in many communities around this nation. Too often, police officers are seen as occupying forces in the very places that need public safety the most.
Evidence-Based Policing allows for the use of research findings to develop those strategies that are best designed to reduce crime and disorder while maintaining the trust and confidence of the public we serve. We believe it’s time that the Policing profession begins to incorporate those research findings into every decision that is made.
We need to know what works so we can continue our important mission in the most effective way. More importantly, we need to examine ourselves to identify those strategies that have been proven ineffective by research to ensure that we are being the best public stewards possible.
We are working police officers advocating for change from within the profession… we are the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing.
For Policing Professionals
Police Officers have a level of experience that cannot be underestimated but we can’t go it alone. Help us combine your skills with those of our research partners to have a voice at the table.
Researchers dedicate their lives to the understanding of crime and disorder yet struggle to impact the strategic decisions of police agencies throughout the country. Join us in combining our voices to advocate for the adoption of evidence-based practices and to increase knowledge generation in policing.
For Policy Makers
Policy makers have a fundamental responsibility to ensure that they legislate from a position of knowledge. By combing with our partners, we can ensure that only strategies with a strong evidence-base of support are advanced.
For Our Communities
In order to build a sustainable relationship, policing professionals need to work collaboratively with our community members. This requires transparency, inclusion and the ability to have a voice. We invite community members to partner with us as we shape the future of policing.
It’s Time To Change Policing
Time to allow working police officers a voice in setting the direction of our profession.
Time to partner with research partners to spread useful knowledge and learn more about policing.
Time to ensure that policy is based upon evidence of what works best, not just tradition.
It’s time for change… are you ready?
