9 Evidence-based policing ‘Using the best available evidence to inform decisions’ ASK TEST LEARN ADAPT Reflect – develop question Trial – compare and contrast Learn ‘what works?’ (or doesn’t…) Adapt policy/practice to reflect findings Scientific models – POP, systems thinking, National Decision-Making Model Testing, transparency and peer review

10 Best available: ‘what works’ ladder Systematic Reviews (Based on level 3-5 studies) 5 Randomised controlled trials 4 Before/after measures Multiple site comparisons 3 Before/after measures Two site comparisons 2 Before/after measures No comparison site 1 One-off measure No comparison site Study designs increasingly rule out potential alternative causes Statements about “what works” & “what doesn’t” Statements about “what’s promising” Study designs cannot rule out potential alternative causes Statements about possible impact Context & mechanisms for change Problem solving and hot spot policing reduce crime according to Campbell systematic reviews Evidence to date suggests leadership training has impact for specific groups Taken together with information about implementation, this result suggests the increase could be attributed to the programme, although the influence of other factors cannot be ruled out.
