Located on Capitol Hill at the corner of Massachusetts Ave NW and North Capitol Street, the museum is within a short walking distance from Union Station, the U.S. Capitol building and Smithsonian museums.
The UK’s creation of the College of Policing, a new police professional body providing global leadership on police standards, raises key questions for evidence-based policing:
· How can research help increase police professionalism in democracies?
· What should be the role of research on what works in training and promotions?
· What should state boards of Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) do?
· What should universities do to support practitioner-led field tests of police practices?
· What should research funders, like NIJ, do to expand “what works” research
· On-line education and assessment: can it help to spread police knowledge?
· What level of knowledge should police have for each rank or role?
· Can master’s degrees in evidence-based policing become like law degrees in law?
From 1:00 PM on April 29th to 1:00 PM on April 30th, the symposium will assemble leading experts from the UK and US to discuss these questions, including
--Alex Marshall, CEO, College of Policing UK
--Laurie Robinson, former US Assistant Attorney General
--Alex Murray, President, Society of Evidence-Based Policing
--John Laub, former Director, US National Institute of Justice
--Sara Thornton, Chief Constable, Thames Valley Police UK
