The UK’s policing think tank

We are the Police Foundation, the UK’s policing think tank. We are the only independent body in the UK  that researches, understands and works to improve policing for the benefit of the public. Policing has never changed as fast and as much as it is today. All this makes the existence of an independent body that uses high quality evidence to deliver an impartial perspective on contemporary policing issues more important than ever.
