Trust and Legitimacy Built through Structured, Fair, and Objective Decision Making (2017)*

Recent discourse suggests that successful and stable relationships between the police and the public are built on trust and legitimacy through fair, equitable, and respectful treatment in law enforcement’s effort to control crime, disorder, and even terrorism.

Evidence-based policing is fundamental to these issues.  Read it here.
