The National Police Foundation is very pleased to announce a new partnership with the Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA) to serve as MCSA’s research partner. Our goal is to provide independent and objective research on a variety of issues, translational services, policy analysis, technology assessments and reviews, evaluations, and the development of promising and evidence-based resources for the MCSA. This work will be done in support of MCSA’s mission and in recognition of their leading role in American policing.
The National Police Foundation’s mission is to advance policing through innovation and science.
