The ability of law enforcement agencies to respond to emerging threats and future goals depends on the implementation of new operational initiatives, policies, and programs based on leveraging community resources and evidence-informed practices. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss strategies for establishing collaborative partnerships between law enforcement and academic institutions and researchers. Law enforcement personnel have an obligation to strengthen their existing practices and through a collaborative process and engaging with academic institutions interdisciplinary teams are able to review essential aspects of the proposed research, determine the potential impact on local resources, and identify strategies to enhance existing practices. Academic-community collaboration can enhance law enforcement operations, provide additional services to the community, and enhance existing research through scientific inquiry to assist with answering practical operational questions that are needed.
