The College is helping to facilitate the creation and delivery of fully effective working police-academic partnerships that will support the development and use of research evidence across policing.  Developing and building on such collaborations will help:

  • Continue to generate the evidence base in policing;

  • Encourage and stimulate new ideas for research by practitioners;

  • Provide greater coherence to police-academic engagement;

  • Develop skills and confidence of the Service in creating, seeking and using research evidence.
