The Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame recognizes innovative law enforcement practitioners who have been relentless champions of institutionalizing the use of research, analysis, and evidence-based practices in their agencies. Since the inception of the Hall in 2010, 43 individuals have been inducted into the Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame. Last week, at the annual Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy Symposium at George Mason University, six new members were inducted.
