In early 2015, a group friends who all worked in policing began talking to each other about our experiences. It turned out that we had more than friendship in common… we shared a common concern about the state of policing in America.
We had all come to a point in our careers where we realized there was very little scientific evidence to support what we were doing. We worked in different size departments, in different areas of the Country and within different policing assignments but found that our different work environments and experiences just confirmed our suspicions. We all believed there had to be a better way of policing… evidence-based policing seems to be the answer.
