No, Not THAT Kind of Evidence: scientific evidence as basis for desicion-making in policing

The Dr. Gordon Wicijowski Law Foundation of Saskatchewan Lecture

Presented by
Laura Huey
Professor of Sociology & Director of the Canadian Society of Evidence Based Policing
University of Western Ontario

There are a number of common misconceptions surrounding evidence-based policing, what it can and cannot do, and how it can be useful to the field of public policing. Laura Huey will discuss evidence-based policing as an approach that combines the scientific method with police knowledge and experience to produce a more reliable evidence base. Drawing on a number of examples, she will demonstrate how critical it is for police-decision-makers (and everyone else!) to possess some degree of scientific literacy.
