Evidence-Based Crime Reduction Strategies for Small, Rural, and Tribal Agencies
The IACP, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office), and Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy (CEBCP) at George Mason University partnered to gather, evaluate, translate, and recommend best and emerging crime reduction practices for small, rural, and tribal law enforcement agencies.
This guide presents information on evidence-based policing practices in small, rural, and tribal agencies, which often have different problems and different needs from the large, urban agencies where most law enforcement research is conducted— as well as different strengths. It includes case studies and additional information gleaned from the literature and from conversations with law enforcement leaders.
