5 Conclusion

Over recent years, key practices related to evidence-based policing have gained greater relevance and importance. This course has explored the background to evidence-based practices in policing and how they reflect an increased desire to support decisions and interventions with clear evidence and data, so enhancing their delivery and overall effectiveness.
