An International Symposium on Policing Education and Evidence-based Practice. How can the UK benefit from insights from other countries and cognate professions?

Following this 2018 event, a special edition journal has been published which explores developing and evaluating graduate police training.

On Wednesday 27 June 2018, Birkbeck hosted an International Symposium on Evidence-Based Policing. Speakers discussed ways in which the UK could learn from other professions and contexts in order to prepare for significant changes in the UK policing training landscape.
