Summary
"This book is dedicated to applied research into policing, its characteristics, challenges and opportunities. It focuses on the process of conducting research that can usefully inform policy and practice. Despite growing demand for such evidence, remarkably little has been written about the theory and practice of applied police research. This edition is designed to fill this gap, providing a valuable resource for those interested in academia-police collaborations. The book comprises a carefully curated selection of reflective contributions from some of the world's leading applied police researchers and some emerging talent. Together, the authors have almost 300 years of police research experience across countries including America, Australia, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK. Their contributions span a broad and novel spectrum of issues, including: initiating and maintaining effective collaborations; promoting knowledge-exchange between police and researchers; using theory to inform practice and vice versa; conducting policy-relevant research; managing ethical dilemmas; and conducting research inside and outside police organisations. Although not a traditional methods book, the volume contains both practical everyday advice and calls for more fundamental programmes of change. This book sheds new light on long-neglected areas of theory and practice. It is expected to interest a broad and international audience, including: academics and police instructors; university students and police cadets; police officers and analysts; senior police management; and government policy-makers and research funders"--
