For 40 years we’ve produced trusted, impartial research to support better policing and create a safer society.

The Police Foundation holds a unique place in the policing landscape. It is the only independent charity located between the police service, the government and academia. It bridges all three but is accountable to none.

  • We produce genuinely independent research in an increasingly politicised environment.
  • We support the police to create a safer society by researching the most harmful and least understood crime.
  • We provide safe spaces to hold debate, bringing the police and their partners together to share what they know about reducing crime and keeping people safe.

With crime rapidly evolving, our mission is more important today than ever.

We hope you will join us by supporting our work. If you would like more information please contact the Police Foundation.
