In October 2022 the Global Collaboration of Evidence Based Policing broadcast a fully live studio-quality 24- hour continuous conference out of two hubs – Christchurch, New Zealand and London, United Kingdom.
The conference brought together world-leading criminologists from across the globe, academic thinkers, and police professionals from dozens of agencies, to look at the role that evidence, its legitimacy, and policing leadership have in everyday policing – shaping “exceptional” policing, the evidence-based way.
The Global Collaboration of Evidence Based Policing has now teamed-up with Policing TV to bring the best of the conference material to a wider audience.
Opening with the statement ‘Policing Matters!’, Professor Tom Kirchmaier, Director Policing and Crime Research Group at the London School of Economics takes us on a journey around the relationship between crime detection and response times – providing some unique insights into what the evidence tells us about the benefits of faster response times and at what point the benefits of a quick police response begin to fade.
Professor Kirchmaier also discusses notions of balanced policing – focusing on issues of fairness v deterrence and concludes with a stark cost-benefit analysis of the benefits of double crewing, and a clear finding around the fact that ‘diversity matters’.
