For the past several years, interest in Evidence-Based Policing has skyrocketed. An extension of evidence-based medicine, this form of analytical research (using control groups and other scientific methodologies) has helped forward-thinking agencies to better understand the challenges they face, and the solutions that make the most sense to solve those problems. In this week's podcast, Jim and Doug welcome guests Renee Mitchell and Jason Potts, co-founders of the American Society of Evidence-Based Policing, to discuss what EBP actually is, and why line-level officers should not only care about it, but actively work to use it.
