Our Vision: The Creation of Tools to Empower Police to Make Evidence Informed Decisions

Formed in April 2015, The Canadian Society of Evidence-Based Policing (CAN-SEBP) is an association of police practitioners, academic researchers, public policy-makers and others, whose mission is to foster the creation and mobilization of quality research in order to make evidence based approaches a cornerstone of policing in Canada.

Solve Policing Problems:

Through the use of research evidence we will raise awareness of the value of evidence-based practice, provide access to research tools and guidance, advocate evidence-based practice across all policing bodies, and provide a forum for police professional researchers.

Production of New Research Evidence:

By engaging with police practitioners and researchers we will support police practitioners to undertake research project, support police practitioners to access research expertise, support researchers to access police data, and facilitate awareness of ongoing police research projects.


Spreading the Movement:

We will communicate research evidence to police practitioners and the public, disseminate police-based research to different audiences, and present the implications of research findings for policing practice.
