To achieve these aims the Network will engage in activities that include:

Evidence-Based Policing – Research Showcase 2017
The British Society of Criminology Policing Network and the College of Policing hosted another Research Showcase as part of the College’s High Potential Development Scheme (a five-year training programme designed to equip middle-rank officers for the senior ranks). In the showcase, policing scholars had the opportunity to present their empirical research directly to approximately 65 serving officers (and fellow academics). The session took place at the College of Policing site in Ryton, Coventry. It included lunch, a two hour ‘walkabout session’ in which officers asked questions at each presenter’s stand, and coffee.
Evidence-Based Policing – Research Showcase 2016
Following the success of the May 2015 event, The British Society of Criminology Policing Network and the College of Policing hosted another research showcase (11 May 2016) as part of the High Potential Development Scheme (a five-year training programme designed to equip middle-rank officers for the senior ranks). In the showcase, policing scholars had the opportunity to present their empirical research directly to approximately 50 serving officers (and fellow academics), in the process contributing to the evidence-based policing agenda. The session took place at the College of Policing site in Sunningdale Park. It included lunch, a two hour ‘walkabout session’ in which officers could ask questions at each presenter’s stand, and coffee.
