Police Foundation Releases New Issue of Ideas in American Policing

Yesterday, the Police Foundation released the newest issue of its flagship seminar and publication series, Ideas in American Policing, entitled “Outside the Academy: Learning Community Policing through Community Engagement.” In it, Anne Li Kringen, Ph.D. and Jonathan Allen Kringen, Ph.D. beg the question, “Can new recruits really learn community policing inside the training academy? Using New Haven Police Department’s innovative approach to training recruits in community policing through community engagement outside the academy as an example, this publication explores the impact of this innovative approach on the involved recruits, the potential value of context-based learning, and the benefits of formative community experiences for police recruits.

We encourage you to view and download the publication here, and if you missed the presentation, we’ll be posting a video of the lecture and discussion on our website in the next few weeks. If you would like to read other issues in the Ideas in American Policing series, written by esteemed authors such as Dr. Lawrence Sherman and Dr. David Weisburd, please visit our Ideas in American Policing Library.
