SPI is now Strategies for Policing Innovation!

In October 2017, SPI launched a new website, which features information, findings, research, and tools from SPI sites across the nation. We hope interested users find this newly designed website to be a useful resource as they learn about innovative policing strategies.

The Innovations Suite Researcher Practitioner Fellows Academy was held in Chicago, IL., on February 27-March 2, 2018. The objectives of the academy included creation of a network of researchers and practitioners actively engaged in partnerships, action research, and use of evidence-based practices.

See the SPI website, and specifically the Training and Technical Assistance page for information, findings, research, and tools from SPI sites across the nation.
