Improving policing and reducing crime
The Police Foundation is the only independent think tank focused entirely on developing knowledge and understanding of policing and crime reduction, while challenging the police service and the government to improve policing for the benefit of the public. The Police Foundation acts as a bridge between the public, the police and the government, while being owned by none of them.
The Police Foundation’s mission
- To pose challenging questions and promote debate on policing, police reform and tackling crime
- To provide commentary, knowledge and insight into contemporary policing issues
- To improve practice in policing and crime reduction through research, consultancy and training.
In partnership with the Barrow Cadbury Fund, the Police Foundation held two roundtables which looked at how Police and Crime Commissioners can drive further reform and consider new and potentially radical avenues for change.
Our third paper from our Police Effectiveness in a Changing World project presents the findings from our multi-agency partnership project to reduce recurrent violence, many of which challenge currently understood orthodoxies.
