Research

What are the consequences of not having evidence of policing strategies that are effective?

Research plays a pivotal role in evaluating the effectiveness of policing activities and introducing new processes, policies, procedures, and practices that work.

The strategic focus of the National Institute of Police Studies (NIPS) as a leading knowledge development and disseminating hub, is to be a catalyst for new research in policing and development in policing and other security fields that will promote skills on security and safety.

Research makes available a broad range of in-depth works that are accessible by police officers and other practitioners for informed decision. In achieving this objective, the Institute partners with national and international policing experts, law enforcement officers and academics to:

Initiate and commission comprehensive research on priority areas of security and safety concerns

Identify, collate, analyse and share credible findings on the  Institute-led strategic needs valuations;

Encourage entrenchment of best standards and practice in policing operations

Support Police and others to build capacity in policing research rooted in evidence-based approaches and inculcated in training and development

Provide evidence of research to promote and build partnerships amongst law enforcement agencies
