Our research programs include department self-reviews, custom research and published research papers in support of an evidenced-based approach to public policy and policing.
Department Self Reviews are analyses which any department may undertake to determine how citizens view the department and its officers, how the officers view the citizens, and how the officers view themselves and their department. For these reviews, approaches such as the use of surveys may be used to gauge personal sentiment. The surveys attempt to assess the sentiment of stakeholders such as officers, community members, business owners and students. Departments work directly with research professionals to design their self-reviews.

Departments participating in any program may wish to initiate a custom research study conducted by the New York University public policy institute BetaGov. In these studies, departments and community members work directly with research professionals to design their custom research study. For these studies. tools such as the use of surveys may be conducted of personnel, citizens, and volunteers. Then an intervention is introduced such as the application of PEACE OFFICER decals or uniform changes. Then a final survey is conducted to gauge changes in how officers are aware of themselves, how the public sees them, and how they engage with one another.
Research papers address issues of strategic importance to municipal policing.
“Returning to our roots as Peace Officers is how we operationalize the kind of changes we are seeing our communities express desire for today.”
