The future of Problem Solving and Evidence Based Policing, and why the biggest threat is police

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


The psychology of influence is a broad church, with many different aspects relevant for initiatives to solve crime problems and improve policing. Many, however, remain lesser-known and under-utilised as ways in which police, offender, and victim, decision making could be influenced to better prevent and reduce crime. Suggestions will be made for where and how policing and crime prevention might benefit most from adopting ways of influencing people beyond ‘nudge’. Focus will also be placed on how problem solving and EBP need to become better integrated in future and why the biggest threat to EBP may be police themselves!
