Smart Policing and the Challenge of Translational Criminology

Dr Gordon Wicijowski Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Lecture

Smart Policing and the Challenge of Translational Criminology

Guest Speaker:
Dr Scott H. Decker
Foundation Professor
School of Criminology and Criminal Justice
Arizona State University

Policing has had a lot of titles over the past fifty years. Team Policing, Community Policing and Problem Oriented Policing have all been in vogue only to evolve into a new name or new set of practices. Some of the changes in policing have occurred in response to external pressures and threats to the organization and practice of policing; others have come from inside the police. Smart Policing is the latest conceptualization of policing in North America. This presentation will argue that Smart Policing is more likely than other iterations to endure, in part because it is founded on evidence based approaches and integrates translational criminology into practices, strategies and styles of law enforcement. Examples of the integration of research into policing will be identified and discussed.

Free Lecture. No registration necessary.
