The Police Foundation and its staff have successfully delivered training to a variety of policing and criminal justice organizations, with funding support from federal agencies and as part of the Police Foundation’s contribution to the policing community. The Police Foundation also routinely partners with other organizations, such as the International Association of Crime Analysts, to deliver basic and advanced training to specific audiences. Training delivered by the Police Foundation has covered a variety of topics, including crime analysis.
Providing technical assistance to state and local police and criminal justice agencies, is a key strength of the Police Foundation. The Police Foundation has provided such assistance in the form of agency and strategy assessments and recommendations, reviews of evidence-based practices in key areas, interpretation and translation of research and other scientific evidence, and program and strategy design and implementation support. In addition to supporting individual agencies, the Police Foundation currently serves as a technical assistance provider under several federally funded initiatives, including the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services’ (COPS’) Collaborative Reform Initiative and BJA’s Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program.
